Terence Cavanaugh Ph.D.
Home Page

I am a instructor at the University of South Florida in Tampa, as a member of the Secondary Education Instructional Technology program. Here I instruct undergraduates and graduates in instructional/educational technology and science methods. Additionally I am coordinator for the Graduate Certificates in Instructional Technology program. Along with general university instruction I work with FCIT presenting workshops and working with Professional Development Schools, such as Pasco County's T. Weightman Middle School, and Tampa's King High. My main interests and works are in the use of multimedia for the enhancement of instruction and the development of instruction for distance learning, including classic media technologies and the use of the Internet's World Wide Web.

My doctoral dissertation involed a study into the applications of using content rich entertainment films and repurposing them for science education. If you are really interested you can download the PDF version of EFFECT OF USING REPURPOSED SCIENCE RICH FEATURE FILMS WITH VARYING LEVELS OF STUDENT ACTIVITY IN MIDDLE GRADES SCIENCE INSTRUCTION or you might just be happy reading the Abstract.

And if you really want to know all the details about my career so far you can read my resume.
