Dr. Thomas is a professor at Michigan State University who focuses on how to teach science to non-scientists. His research focuses on the visual communication of science. Much of his work tries to elaborate on the overlap of art, science, education, and technology. He is also involved with the STEM to STEAM movement, or… how do you add the Arts to improve training in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics? Recent projects have looked at MOOCs, augmented reality, and mobile applications. He currently serves as the Associate Direction of the Center for Integrative Studies in General Science and the CNS Digital Curriculum Coordinator at Michigan State University where he also holds an appointment as the Assistant Curator for Science Education at the MSU Museum.

Instructional Design and Technology (IDT) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) have undergone several changes in the last year. The CTL was launched to enhance the services previously offered through the CITE. Complementing the physical improvements, we are redesigning our web presence (which currently includes both http://idt.nmu.edu and http://www.nmu.edu/ctl) into a single, integrated site. As we plan our new website, we would like your input on how the site can be most useful to you. Please use this link to provide your input:
