Pat Harrison brought
Allison to San Diego in 1977. When she came to San Diego
from NYC, she, Dave Sharpe and Pat were the Educational
Technology faculty, a group that was then concentrating
attention on synchronized slide tapes, and instructional
design, of course. As
you can tell from browsing the department's web site, we've
come a long, long way, adding
intriguing new colleagues, updating courses and approaches,
and attracting wonderful
students to our Masters and doctoral programs.
Allison is proud of a lively long-term relationship. She also has two fabulous cats, Shayna and Gwynn. Yes, Gwynn was named for Tony Gwynn, the San Diego Padres excellent retired ball player. Allison actually exercises more than she did when she wrote the initial entry on this web page and is committed to the treadmill, cross trainer, and mountain trails. She continues to like her work more than is healthy.
