I'm Laura Knight, one of the ITDs at Oxnard College. People are my coffee. My passion lies in fostering student success through innovative teaching methods and personalized learning experiences across face-to-face, hybrid, and online modalities. With more than 20 years of instructional experience, I recognize that all faculty are unique subject matter experts. I love collaborating to help them learn new technology and design skills to support their student's success. 

My latest interests are in using Digital Storytelling and Gamification in education. Our stories create powerful connections.
