Student Spotlight: Nathaniel Berrios, Colorado Technical University

Bringing Your Passion and Experience to Online Courses

We’ve met a number of students who come to their classes with an impressive amount of passion and prior experience. Nathaniel Berrios is one of them. He’s taking online courses in software systems engineering through Colorado Technical University. When we saw his work pop up in the Seelio activity feed we had to reach out to learn more about what he’s already accomplished, how he discovered his passion for systems engineering, and how he’s connecting his past experience with his current online courses.

See what he had to say and his advice for other students who want to explore the world of programming.

Welcoming Tiffany Marra as Seelio’s Vice President of Academics

We’re excited to welcome Dr. Tiffany Marra to the Seelio team. Tiffany is joining us as Vice President of Academics and will be leading our Educational Services team, advising on portfolio curricula and outcomes in higher education for our university partners.

Before joining us, she was an Adjunct Faculty member at University of Michigan-Dearborn teaching in the College of Education, Health, and Human Services; directing the Women in Learning and Leadership program (WILL); and overseeing the Hub for Teaching and Learning Resources as its managing director. In her role in the Hub, she served as a consultant to faculty, helping them consider pedagogical and technological solutions to meet their teaching and learning goals.

Tiffany’s particular area of focus is helping programs, departments, and units develop online portfolio models that encourage learners to reflect on their learning and growth over time and across contexts.  She has undertaken research to examine how curriculum shapes learner’s perceptions of self and expectations of success, specifically in their ability to transfer knowledge and skills across contexts. Prior to working at UM-Dearborn, she worked at the Ann Arbor campus for 10 years in various roles, including guiding the MPortfolio initiative and managing SmartGirl.org for the Institute for Research on Women and Gender. She earned her Ph.D. in Educational Technology from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor.

We’re thrilled to have Tiffany join our all-star team and look forward to the great work we’ll be able to accomplish for students and their universities!
