My name is Dr. Bruce Spitzer, and I'm excited to be the instructor for your section of the course.

I earned my doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction with emphases in Educational Technology and Foundations of Education from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I also have a Master's degree in English from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas, and a Bachelor's in Speech and Drama from McPherson College, McPherson, Kansas.

I've worked in both education (I taught high school speech and drama for 6 years and was a community college English instructor for 9 years) and business (vice-president for a small distance learning training company).

When I'm not doing school stuff (OK, when are we not doing school stuff, huh?), I like to work crossword puzzles, mountain bike, and hike.  I also really like to cook and bake. In the summers of 2006, 2007, and 2008, I participated in RAGBRAI, the Des Moines Register's Great Bike Ride Across Iowa! 

And yes, I ride my bike to campus every day, even in the winter!

I am married to Gail. She's a yoga/Pilates teacher at Southold Dance Theatre and teaches Nutrition for IU South Bend. We have 3 cats (Marvin, Molly, and Maxine).
