“What I like most about teaching is working with our highly motivated and interesting students. It is a joy to see students learn, develop, and exceed what they thought possible. My favorite teaching goal is creating a level playing field where students get to explore their interests, follow their dreams, develop new skills, and test their limits while creating lifelong friendships and expanding their professional networks. What I like most about online education is the access it provides. From working parents and busy professionals to deployed military personnel, online education brings the professors and the education to the student, on their own schedules.”
Dr. Greenberg has performed educational consulting projects in curriculum review, program planning, course design, health outcomes data analysis and presented educational technology seminars for students, faculty, and business professionals in San Diego. He lives in Minnesota with his wife, Courtney, and daughter, Gwendolyn, and enjoys, hiking, martial arts, playing the violin, woodworking, website creation, keeping backyard chickens, and taking rare surfing trips to San Diego.
