Hi! I am Diana Fischer, the proponent of this blog on online education. I'm glad you are here, and I hope you enjoy your visit. Please feel free to look around and comment. I love discussion!
About me – I am a computer specialist by degree and profession. My goal in life is to live in a house in the woods with no one else around for miles, where I can just read and teach online. Well, I have almost realized my goal as I live in a house in the woods, can read all I want, and have the internet to teach online!
I have always felt fortunate in earning a Ph.D. in computational linguistics from Georgetown University that led to a successful career as head of Information Systems at the NATO Maintenance and Supply Agency. As a socially responsible member of society, I believe we must give back to society by helping those who have not been as fortunate. I am doing this by teaching first-year college courses and motivating students in the pursuit of their dreams.
Although my career was in IT, my heart is in teaching. Thanks to the advancement in technology, I can follow both passions by using IT to teach online; hence, the purpose of this blog is to share articles and thoughts on how to deliver quality online education.
I am married to a wonderful man for 48 years (yeah, a record) and have three children; one living in France, a second in Maryland, and the third bridging both countries.
