Scott Kimball has worked in instructional design and technology in higher education for over 25 years. His degree in Broadcasting led to working in TV and Film Production before making a move to Instructional Television in the 1990’s with The University of Maine System. When online learning began its rise to prominence in the early 2000’s, Scott joined the Sloan-C Consortium (now the Online Learning Consortium), the New Century Learning Consortium, and Quality Matters to network with other institutions and earn certificates in the then nascent technologies and pedagogies for online instruction. He is a Quality Matters Certified Online Course Reviewer, and holds additional certifications from Quality Matters in Constructing Learning Objectives, as well as Online Accessibility. He holds an OLC certification in Online Science Labs, a Distance Learning Certificate from The University of West Georgia, and a certificate in Project Management from UNH. He was an adjunct instructor at The University of Maine at Augusta, teaching courses in Digital Imaging for several years beginning in 2008.
Scott co-coordinated the Sloan-C New England Regional Conference for three years beginning in 2009. He was an invited presenter on online course template design at the PASSHE Virtual Conference in 2013, and has presented at the DIVERSE conference (Portland, ME and Leuven, Belgium), iTeach (Fairbanks, AK), Quality Matters (Tucson, AZ), and Educause (Chicago, IL) on topics ranging from media production to active learning, and learning space evaluation and design.
Scott joined UNH in 2013. Here, he currently leads the Learning Development and Innovation team at CEITL. He coordinates the annual Faculty Instructional Technology Summer Institute, and works with his team to consult with faculty and to create faculty development opportunities - workshops, webinars, and asynchronous online courses for online instruction, active learning, inclusive teaching, Open Educational Resources (OER), and more. He also coordinates with UNH Online to offer instructional design support to UNH faculty developing courses for online programs. He is a member of the UNH Classroom Maintenance Committee, evaluating learning spaces for their suitability for active learning, proposing classroom upgrades, and reviewing new classroom designs.
Outside of work, Scott’s interests lie in photography, travel, hiking, sailing, and kayaking.
