Culture Influencers: Katie Alaniz

Sarah (Katie) Alaniz, EdDDr. Katie Alaniz, assistant professor of Education, was invited to present at the Technology and Curriculum Conference of Aldine on Oct. 26, 2019, in Houston. Her presentation was entitled, “Let’s Drive In! Sailing the Six C’s of Learning in the Digital Age,” and was created on the basis of the book, “Digital Media in Today’s Classrooms: The Potential for Meaningful Teaching, Learning, and Assessment,” which was coauthored with Dr. Dawn Wilson, former professor of Education, and Joshua Sikora, assistant professor of Cinema and New Media Arts, and which was published by Rowman & Littlefield Education. This presentation was given in loving memory of Dr. Wilson, without whom, this book would not have been written. Her life will always be remembered through her teaching, her writing, and especially the legacy carried on by those she so lovingly taught and mentored during her time spent at HBU.
