Spotlight on... Regina Bobak

This is the next installment in a series of blog posts to help you get acquainted with some of the people who work in the library.  Today we introduce you to the director of the Instructional Media and Design Center (IMD), who has an office in the library. 

What is your name?  Dr. Regina Bobak

What is your title?   Instructional Technology Specialist

What is a typical day like for you?
A feature of my job that I enjoy is that I don’t have ‘typical’ days. Any of the following tasks may occur at any given time:
* Answer emails/phone calls (most likely a faculty member needing assistance)
* Research various technologies and methodologies
* Meet with faculty on various projects
* Manage the IMD Center (projects, budget, staff)
* Communicate information to faculty
* Plan for upcoming events
* Troubleshoot BOLT issues
* Create documentation and tutorials
* Test new versions of BOLT
* Teach faculty via webinars
* Evaluate software
* Committee meetings and work
I can have a list of tasks that I want to complete for the day and will push them to the side due to a higher priority request or issue. It’s all about prioritizing the work and maintaining a high level of customer service.

What else should people know about you?  I like to bake and the IMD Center student workers enjoy the results!

How can people get in contact with you?
