My name is Rabia Lieber. I am the Educational Technology Specialist in the College of Education. Welcome to my page. I am here to help COE faculty and students use technology more effectively in their classrooms. I am available to lead whole class workshops, one-on-one collaborations with faculty or students, and/or technology and media support.

Classroom Workshops

I am here to help you use educational technology easily and efficiently in your classrooms, so your students can go on to use it in theirs. I have listed some of my previous workshop offerings below, but I am also always happy to explore new ideas with you to meet your needs. I can come to your classroom in person, ZOOM in digitally, or act as a resource for you or your students. If you’d like to work with me on a project or a lesson, please contact me at lieberra@jmu.edu.
