Peter Van Leusen


What I Do

I’m the Director for Digital Learning Initiatives in the Fulton School of Engineering at Arizona State University. In this role, I collaborate closely with departments and faculty on student success initiatives across diverse modalities and disciplines. My recent projects focused on collaborating on adaptive curriculum and courseware development, integration of XR/VR, designing MOOCs in a foreign language, and spearheading innovative digital educational experiences for broad audiences.

What I Did

Before joining ASU, I worked as the Assistant Director in the Office of Instructional Consulting in the School of Education at Indiana University and previously taught middle and high school German.

What I Studied

I hold a PhD in Instructional Systems Technology from Indiana University, Bloomington. My research interests include Faculty Development, Instructional Technology, Instructional Design, and Innovative Teaching & Learning in face-to-face, hybrid, and online formats. I also received an M.A. in Foreign Literature & Pedagogy from the University of Delaware which allowed me to teach in the K12 classroom. Before that, I completed my B.S. in Computer Information Systems at Goldey Beacom College in Delaware.

What I Like

When I’m not designing creative and innovative solutions, you can find me playing soccer, running, or biking. I like to be outdoors!
