Bilingual/Multicultural Education


Dr. Howard has installed and operated each of the following:

The Counseling masters degree program in Gallup is now equipped with a state of the art observation/recording system with cameras, one-way mirrors, listening/viewing stations, and immediate playback for reflection groups in training.

The Gallup Graduate Studies Center is hard wired directly to the internet. Students, faculty, and staff are instantly on-line any time of the day or night with high speed connections. The modern laboratory is equipped with PowerMac and Dell computers, color printer, laser printer, scanner, digital camera, video camera, and the applications to support professional computer materials production.

Instructors and students can depend upon high tech in the classroom, as well. Computers, videos, recorders, and more can be connected to large televsion monitors and/or Proxima desktop projectors. Each classroom in the new building has two long white boards and one long chalk board, screens and overhead projectors, and access to the internet.

I subscribe to a number of electronic services for information updates on the particular computers and communications technology equipment for which I am responsible.

The Gallup Graduate Studies Center website,, is becoming increasingly popular as the students discover its utility. for example, there were 113 hits in December, 1999 while the Center was closed. Hits dramatically increased during the registration period of January, 2000, and have continued high since the semester started. There were over 422 hits in April by the 19th.


I taught with video conferencing for several years in Silver City and Deming. I presented at conferences on distance education topics, including Arizona, Washington, Texas, Florida, Colorado and New Mexico. I received distance education training at California State University, dominguez Hills.

I have been teaching with distance education since 1986 when I would fly with a team of instructors from Albuquerque to Gallup, then rent a car and drive to Naschitti to deliver Navajo bilingual teacher education courses for the University of New Mexico. In Texas I taught courses at remote sites every semester to accomodate teachers needing the ESL endorsement. From Silver City I drove to Deming, Magdalena, and Douglas. I currently drive from Gallup to Alamo Navajo school to teach TESOL courses.
