Current EdD in Learning Technologies (DELT) candidate David Greenfield (MA ’07) was recently elected to the board of the Museum Educators of Southern California (MESC). The board created a new position, chair for technology and social media strategy, for Greenfield.

In addition to being elected to the MESC board, Greenfield recently spoke on a panel at the Museums and the Web 2013 conference and wrote a guest blog post for edgital.org on massively open online courses, or MOOCs. He also spoke at Future Salon LA on the topic of MOOCs education, and was quoted in a blog post on the Art Museum Teaching online forum.

His experience in digital media includes corporate communication design and computer-based training; new media development, education, curatorial, and registration for museums; and teaching students and instructors. In addition, he has photographed and cataloged several private art collections using modern digital collection management systems.
