Timothy Kessler, M.Ed., Joins CALS as Director of Technology for the College

Timothy Kessler

I’m really excited to be back at UA Little Rock. For me this is a home-coming after a couple years away at eVersity.

Timothy Kessler

Kessler’s first job at UA Little Rock was in February 2005 in Special Collections before moving to the Department of Psychology. He served the department as Administrative Office Supervisor while he studied for his B.A. in anthropology in the former College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. He received his diploma in May 2008 and began working as Program Coordinator in the College of Education later that year.

An interest in using technology for learning inspired Kessler to pursue a M.Ed. in Learning Systems Technology here at UA Little Rock. In July of 2014 he transferred to the College of Social Science and Communications to become their Learning Technology Specialist. There he helped Dean Lisa Bond-Maupin identify and implement ways technology-enhanced spaces could increase the quality of student experiences.

After a brief stint at eVersity, getting thoroughly steeped in Blackboard during the 15-16 and 16-17 academic years, he has returned to UA Little Rock to provide leadership and guidance for information technology and digital initiatives in the College of Arts, Letters, and Sciences. He will help faculty and staff with any office or classroom technology issues, provide oversight for college computer labs and consultation for department computer labs.

“I learned more about Blackboard at eVersity then I will probably ever use here,” Kessler says, “I’d be more than happy to offer advice or serve as a sounding board for any of your Blackboard needs as well.”

Kessler can be contacted by email at tlkessler1@ualr.edu or via phone at 501-569-3350. He has provided two convenient ways faculty and staff can request assistance:
