Lisa Young, Ph.D., Maricopa Community College System

Lisa is a life-long learner, technology geek, and adventurer. Her pioneering spirit not only applies travel and outdoor exploration, but also to her teaching. For 15 years, Dr. Young taught hydrology by using the landscape to help her students understand water resources. Through her desire to meet instructional needs with innovation, Dr. Young mixed online classes with outdoor field classes in which students hiked to sample water. While teaching hydrology Lisa enhanced her teaching skills by earning a M.Ed. in Learning and Instructional Technology and a Ph.D. in Instructional Design for Online Learning. She currently supports faculty in their teaching adventures by serving as the Faculty Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Scottsdale Community College. Lisa has ventured into the OER frontier at Maricopa Community Colleges which has saved students over $10 million in course materials costs over the last six years. She is currently on sabbatical delving into big data and predictive analytics and their use in higher education.
