Gardner Campbell, Ph.D., currently serves as Associate Professor of English at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, where for nearly three years he also served as Vice Provost for Learning Innovation and Student Success and Dean of the innovative University College. He is an intellectual omnivore, a former radio announcer, a professor (Milton and Renaissance studies, film studies, new media studies), and a bassist. Gardner has worked in teaching and learning technologies for over twenty-five years, nearly fifteen of those (to his great surprise) as an administrator. He’s been a member of numerous advisory boards as well as the governing board of the New Media Consortium, serving as chair in 2011. He also speaks frequently at conferences and workshops, both nationally and internationally (Sweden, Canada, Italy, Australia): here are his three most-watched YouTube videos.
