Meet Scott Mahler
DIRECTOR OF DIGITAL IMMERSION
What I Do
As Director, Digital Immersion, I work closely with administration, faculty, instructional designers, media developers and technologists to deliver outstanding learning experiences at the intersection of art, science and technology. I am thankful for the opportunity to work with this community to evolve and implement the digital immersion strategy across the Fulton Schools of Engineering.
What I Did
Prior to joining the ASU family in December of 2016, I provided operational and strategic leadership for the Digital Education & Innovation Lab in the Office of Academic Innovation (AI) at my alma mater, the University of Michigan; Prior to my time with AI, I spent 15+ years working in a unit similar to GOEE in UM’s College of Engineering where I started as a media producer for ‘distance learning’ classes before the ‘online’ was common terminology in education. In the past, I’ve also worked as Marketing manager, Television producer and A/V tech.
What I Studied
I received a BA in Film and Video Studies and a BA in Communication from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
What I Like
I believe we most find inspiration outside of our daily routines so I try to push my comfort zone and put myself in situations that will challenge and motivate me in and out of my work life. I enjoy spending time with my family, cycling, live music, movies, writing poetry, sports and excessively large, over-caffeinated, sugary beverages.
