About Me

Dr. Torria Bond, or Tori as she is commonly known, is an accomplished educator with expertise in the areas of curriculum and course design for today’s multi-generational adult learning environments. A published writer, researcher, presenter, and award winning course designer, Tori shares her 20+ years of experience in elementary, secondary, and post-secondary education and her understanding of course management systems, learning theories, and instructional design principles to mentor university professors in their efforts to infuse technology and create interactive and engaging online courses for adult learners. This work is of the utmost importance to her because she believes, as stated by Peter Drucker, “We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn.” Her scholarship can be read in peer reviewed journals such as The Journal for Childhood Education published by the Association for Childhood Education International; Teachers College Record; The Journal for Educational Considerations published by the College of Education at Kansas State University, as well as an chapter entitled “The Good Teacher” published in Kidd and Chen’s edited textbook, “Ubiquitous Learning: Strategies for Pedagogy, Course Design and Technology. Her understanding of the intersection between learning theories and instructional technologies is expressed regularly on her site at TorriaBond.com.
