Wayne will be interim Operations Co-Director of the new Center for Digital Scholarship effective June 1st. The Center is based on a combination of existing Library and IT centers, and will support scholarly and academic activities using digital technologies. Wayne’s role includes helping construct the new Center and moving it towards a goal of a world-class resource for Emory’s faculty, students and staff.

Previously, Wayne was the Director of Emory’s Center for Interactive Teaching (ECIT) where he partnered with faculty and graduate student instructors to explore how digital technologies can be used as part of teaching and learning. In 1997, Wayne began his career at Emory by building ECIT from technology provided by Apple in exchange for them using Emory as a home base to cover the 1996 Olympics. Before working at Emory, Wayne was an independent contractor with Sprint PCS and Cox Communications, developing computer-based instructional programs on cable television and cellular networks. Wayne’s educational background includes degrees from the University of Michigan and the University of Dayton in environmental design and international affairs, respectively. Currently, he is slowly, but surely pursuing his Doctorate in e-Learning.

Wayne was born in Cincinnati, OH, but grew-up just north of there in Dayton, Ohio. His interests outside of work include traveling, art, football (watching and cheering, not playing), and enjoying life with his wife, two sons and dog, Jace. “Watching my sons grow-up, I realize that life is about change,” Wayne says. “The change that will come with the creation of the new Center for Digital Scholarship will take successful practices and people, and weave them into a group to help Emory’s scholarly community move into the digital future.”
