Jeff came to EOL from Discovery Education (a division of Discovery Communications), where he was Director of Instructional Design, focusing on the design and development of media-based learning and assessment programs. Jeff draws on his experience in science, technology, and education to explore new ways of learning about biodiversity, especially through the use of tools and applications that encourage participation and collaboration.
