Narrative: Who/Where in the world is Bill Graziadei?

I am a State University of New York (SUNY) Professor Emeritus & (e)Learning Consultant. As an educator, researcher, consultant and project manager, I have taught Freshman and Senior Seminars, Biology, Cell/Molecular Biology, Immunology, Virology and Information Technology Communications (ITC) in the classroom (35+ years) and online (25+ years). I received the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1978. My research was centered around interferon and its mechanism of action. I have also served in various ITC administrative, consulting, project management and teaching capacities which included CLO, Director of Distance Learning, online instructor/trainer, (e)learning implementation specialist with experience in analysis, design, development and implementation of learning strategies for classroom- and web-based learning with an emphasis on distributed and collaborative learning environments. Currently I serve as a University of Phoenix School of Advanced Studies Online Dissertation Faculty member.

I have taught online and trained instructors at most of the 64 SUNY campuses, made presentations at national and international symposia, published numerous (e)learning and scientific articles and continue to develop and revise online courses and training using both asynchronous (Angel, Blackboard, edu20, Moodle, SpacedEd, Studeous,TopClass and WebCT), synchronous (Centra, Elluminate, HorizonLive, iLinc, Skype, WebTrain, Wimba and Yugma) applications and Web 2.0 social media tools. I'm interested in the added value of teaching-learning with technology in business, education and government. I have worked with both business and educational institutions in the US and abroad that are interested in using asynchronous and/or synchronous web-based instruction to enhance their strategic (e)learning environments. I have been involved with the implementation of enterprise systems for higher education institutions (State University of New York (US), Pennsylvania Higher Education State System (US), University of North Carolina (US), San Francisco State University (US), Bryant & Stratton Colleges (US), Katharine Gibbs Schools (US), Deakin University (Geelong, Melbourne & Warrnambool Australia), Sheffield University (England), University of West Indies (Trinidad and Tobago), and others as well as Global 2000 companies (Dow Chemical (US), McGraw-Hill (US), PricewaterhouseCoopers (US), McGraw-Hill (US), Nokia (Finland), Bayer AG (Germany), Tertia EduSoft (Germany), ST Microelectronics (France), Hyper (South Korea) and others.

As an e-Learning production specialist and instructional consultant/designer, I support clients in the area of instructional technology by mentoring them in the creation of technology rich, web-based courses and production of digital assets. My primary functions include training in the use of CMS/LMS/LCMS, Microsoft Office Suite, Google Apps, Open Office, Zoho and various Web 2.0 tools in creating web-based course content including course-based wikis, blogs and websites, assist in the creation of audio and video files and creating other basic multimedia assets as outlined here. Additional functions I provide include creation of PDFs, editing photos and graphics and guiding and supporting clients in the use of new technologies including web conference software, narrated PowerPoint presentations, short video or audio clips and animated presentations. Lastly and most importantly, I work interactively and collaboratively with clients.

Finally, I have also performed professional work in the human services area. I have provided medical support to PWS adult individuals. Some responsibilities included medical informatics as a Therap administrator, scheduling medical appointments, transportation to appointments, meeting Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services (DDS) standards of healthcare and documentation requirements, knowledge of DDS procedures and regulations and experience working with a special needs population. This included the ability to handle individuals in crisis safely (TCI) with compassion. In addition, I hold First Aid, CPR and MAP certification for medication administration. In addition, I currently serve a volunteer at the International Fund for Animal Welfare, Marine Mammal Rescue Program - (formerly known as the Cape Cod Stranding Network) which responds to stranded seals, whales, dolphins, and porpoises on Cape Cod from the Cape Cod Canal south to the Rhode Island border (SE Mass).
