Photo Description: Alexander Lester.

Alexander (Alex) Lester is the Director of Instructional Technology and Design at Labouré College of Healthcare, where he partners with faculty to assess student learning needs, analyze existing online instructional materials, and identify ways the LMS can advance teaching goals, expand learning activities, assessment strategies, and collaboration opportunities. He collaborates with faculty and IT staff to ensure effective teaching methods and enhance instructional materials.

Alex has also worked as an adjunct faculty member at various institutions, teaching humanities and social sciences courses. He has a track record of delivering high-quality online and face-to-face instruction across disciplines to diverse groups of learners. His outcomes-driven approach emphasizes teaching as praxis and incorporates critical and feminist pedagogical practices.

He received an A.S. in Human Services from Lackawanna College, a B.A. in Philosophy (with a minor in ethics) from Misericordia University, an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Teaching from Bowling Green State University, a PGCert in Philosophy of Education from the University of Winchester, and an M.A. in Computing in Education from Columbia University's Teacher's College. His research interests include educational media, critical digital pedagogy, hegemony in educational technology, and the effects of online faculty precarity on student learning.

In his free time, he enjoys herding his five-year-old chihuahua, Henry Benjamin, being in nature, listening to audiobooks, traveling, eating vegetarian food, and embracing all life has to offer. He loves Starbucks, '90s sitcoms, PBS NewsHour, and is a fan of all things Christmas, including an unashamed passion for Hallmark Christmas Movies.
