Profile

Dr. Wines, active in the Aldous Huxley research community, co-organized the 2008 International Huxley Symposium co-convened by CLU and the Huntington Library in San Marino. She has been a Docent of the Muenster, Germany Aldous Huxley Society since her election in 2009.

In addition to her duties as chair of the English Department (2008-Spring 2013), Dr. Wines  helped develop CLU's Writing Center (now directed by Scott Chiu) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (now directed by Cia DeMartino). The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) provides CLU faculty with one-on-one and group support that includes integrating technology into course redesigns and a Thursday Teaching and Learning series on topics relevant to teaching and learning at CLU. Much of Dr. Wines' scholarship has been centered in this area. She continues as the advisor for CLU's award-winning literary publication Morning Glory (1996-present).

Wines, Joan. "EduCues: A Quick Fix for Three Current Problems in Educational Technology." Hawaii International Conference on Education. Honolulu. January, 2003. Abstract: At the July 2002 SSGRR international conference in L'Aquila, Italy, three needs emerged as particularly pressing in educational technology at institutions of learning worldwide.These included the need for: 1) more innovative design in the integration of technology into the curriculum; 2) more emphasis on learning strategies and less on both teaching methods and instructional software; and 3) more concentrated attention on issues of technological equitability.This paper demonstrates how a handheld PRS device (the EduCue) can help fill these needs and makes a case for a more comprehensive tapping of its proven potential for enhancing student learning.

Wines, Joan and Leanne Neilson, "Cognitive Learning Theory Meets Technology: Incorporating Research on Attention into Course E- Designs," presented and published at the AACE Conference in Orlando (March, 2001.
Abstract: During a two-year development period, we have discovered that in order to take fuller advantage of technology's potential for improving teaching and learning, we need to integrate cognitive science as well as good practices research into our technology-enhanced instructional projects. This paper concentrates on demonstrating 1) how current knowledge about one area of cognitive learning theory--Attention--can be incorporated into the technical architecture of an e-designed instructional project, and 2) how such a project, because of its incorporation of cognitive learning research, can build in and provide a more quantitative assessment of learning outcomes than is currently possible.

Abstract: Collaborative software and digital images used in a high-tech classroom have brought Byzantine art that is often viewed as inaccessible closer to the student. Technology applied to the study of literature has also stimulated students' interest in technology-assisted research and greatly improved the quality of the research. Presenters from two universities describe their experiences.

Student also gained invaluable experience in the larger scholarly community by presenting their multimedia research projects at SCCUR, a regional undergraduate research conference.
