Jennifer Courduff

Ph.D.

Dr. Jennifer Courduff is an associate professor at Azusa Pacific University in the School of Education: Teacher Education. She is currently the Program Director for Azusa Pacific University's Master of Arts: Digital Teaching and Learning program. In this capacity, she develops and teaches courses, working with pre- and in-service teachers in the process of deep integration of technology (including assistive technology) into learning activities. The focus of Dr. Courduff’s research is technology integration for teachers of students with disabilities. Her publications and presentations bring to light the unique technology integration challenges found in diverse learning environments. Most recently, she has developed a theory on exemplary technology integration in special education instruction. This theory extends the constructs of TPACK to more clearly define knowledge, skills, dispositions, and belief necessary for authentic technology integration to occur in special education instruction. Her theory has been applied to revision of in-service professional development assistive technology / augmentative alternative communication certificate training in the county of San Bernardino, and in pre-service coursework within the Digital Teaching and Learning Master’s at Azusa Pacific University. Dr. Courduff is dedicated to improving the preparation and ongoing support for systematic, authentic technology integration for teachers of students with special needs.
