Sheri Prupis directs the educational technology activities for NJEDge.Net activities group -- EDge.Networks -- which consists of teams of volunteers from diverse higher educational institutions interested to further discussion and collaboration on subjects such as assessment, distance learning, identify monitoring, video, data, voice, cyberinfrastructure and the CIO forum. Sheri coordinates grants; provides oversight and daily management of the front office operations for NJEDge.Net and writes reports for Board of Trustee meetings. Sheri and Charlie McMickle were instrumental in securing the Verizon FIOS grant for NJEDge.Net and its members. Sheri services as co-investigator on the NJVid grant.
She is the "public" face of NJEDge.Net. She coordinates member relationships, runs the affiliate vendor program and manages member connections to the NJEDge.Net fiber ring infrastructure.
Sheri chairs NJEDge.Net's state-wide annual conference on issues in integration of technology into higher education. She coordinates the online teaching and learning efforts of New Jersey's colleges and universities, and organizes faculty development programs for New Jersey Higher Education.
In order to serve NJEDge.Net better, Sheri is a member of the Program Committee for the Western Co-operative for Educational Technologies (WCET) and is active in ACM SIGUCCS. National participation gives her a wider perspective on the directions NJEDge.Net takes to grow.
Prior to coming to NJEDge.Net Sheri was Director of Academic Computing at the New School University, and Baruch College/CUNY. She was also the manager of educational technologies at UMDNJ. Sheri continues to teach as an adjunct professor as Kean University. She teaches sociology and uses the same web tools that she promotes to our members.
