Jeff HammondTechnology can be a distraction if it is not used properly says Assistant Professor Jeff Hammond of Metropolitan State University in Denver, Colorado. We met with Professor Hammond to discuss his presentation, “Instructional Design Strategies for Informational Media Presentations” which will be presented at the upcoming Teaching Professor Technology Conference, in Atlanta, beginning September 30th. In our conversation, he brings up some interesting questions about the use of media and technology.


“We put the teaching and the technology in two different camps, and… it needs to be thought of as more integrated than that.”

Jeff Hammond is an experienced educational and interactive multimedia trainer. In addition to teaching Communication classes at Metropolitan State University of Denver, he has served as a social media consultant for the Metropolitan Denver YMCA, and has been a featured audiovisual software trainer and presenter for Apple Computer’s MacWorld, the DVD Association, and the Colorado Film and Video Association. Jeff spent a good share of his professional life in broadcast television at KMGH-TV, Denver’s ABC affiliate and has authored numerous commercial DVD titles for a variety of professional clients.

We enjoyed meeting with Professor Hammond and look forward to seeing him at the Teaching Professor Technology Conference in Atlanta. For information about the conference, please go to
