A professor of educational technology at UH Manoa, Catherine Fulford’s expertise is in instructional design, a process that involves collecting data about the learner, learning environment and instruction, and then developing and revising instruction based on the results.

With a background in theatre, Fulford has a flair for creating a learning environment that is dramatic, exciting, engaging and inspiring for her undergraduate and graduate students.
