Lance Eaton

Educational Programs Manager

Lance Eaton served as Educational Programs Manager at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society.  

He has spent the last decade at the intersection of technology and education as an instructional designer in higher education. Previously, he was Associate Director of Learning Design at Brandeis University and Coordinator of Instructional Design at North Shore Community College. He earned his Bachelors Degree in History from Salem State University and has earned Masters Degrees in American Studies (UMASS Boston), Public Administration (Suffolk University), and Instructional Designer (UMASS Boston).  He is currently working on his dissertation on academic piracy as part of a Ph.D. in Higher Education at UMASS Boston.  He has also taught part-time at various institutions in the past 15 years on a range of topics from history and literature to comics, horror, and technology.

When he's not deeply engrossed in thinking about education, equity, and technology, he can be listening to audiobooks, reading comics (or regular books for that matter), gardening, or going for runs or bicycle rides somewhere in the New England area.
