Maribel Duran, MA

OAT Program Coordinator |

My name is Maribel Duran, and I am the Program Coordinator for the Office of Academic Technology. I am a proud Stan State Alumni and have had the opportunity to be part of a team that genuinely cares about the success of all faculty and students here at Stan State. Before joining the Academic Technology team, I was a teacher at Turlock Christian School for five years. I currently assist faculty with academic technology and help coordinate workshops to better support our faculty through the transition over to Canvas. My learning interest includes higher education, cognitive development, educational technology, and instructional design. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies, traveling, reading, swimming, and baking.
