Catherine Manly is a doctoral candidate in higher education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and she teaches statistics for The American Women’s College @ Bay Path University. Her dissertation research investigates the effectiveness of the use of multiple modalities for presenting course content (one aspect of Universal Design for Learning) for improving student learning outcomes in online courses. She is interested in issues of postsecondary access and success, particularly for students underserved by traditional higher education, and the disruptive changes possible because of online and educational technologies.
