About the ITMS Team:
By way of brief introduction, my name is Tom Sciarrino. I’m your dedicated Director of Instructional Technology & Media Services - and fun fact - this year(11/18/2019) I’ll be celebrating 17 years with Muhlenberg College. In marriage terms, it is said that this milestone can be observed with a gift of furniture. While I’m not asking for an office chair, I am encouraging you to pull up a chair (literally or virtually) to participate in what I’ve long found to be one of the most vibrant aspects of the College - our ITMS workshops. These workshops and trainings are aimed at helping you navigate the plethora of tools and services offered here at Muhlenberg College to faculty, staff, and students.
In my role, it’s a privilege to listen and lead in this capacity, as I connect with students, faculty and staff to deliver make-sense media and technology training and solutions aimed at enhancing and complementing the educational experience - all with a persistent eye on the future to keep our community ahead of the curve.
My off-campus life finds me tinkering with gadgets, breaking technology and fixing it and often breaking it again, exploring the open roads on my Harley, hiking with my family and supporting my active daughters across their personal passions for soccer, softball, basketball and scouts (to name a few).
Wow, that is a lengthy title. In a nutshell, I manage the day to day setup and support of media technology used in teaching, learning, and administration in the classroom and for special events. You might see me running all around campus or hosting the Instructional Technology & Digital Learning Video Update.
I’ve been working as an audio/video professional for 20+ years, with more than half spent at Muhlenberg College. My background ranges from physical installation to classroom design, project planning to teaching technology support. I have comprehensive knowledge and experience in media making and media technologies, including but not limited to: video production, A/V systems integration, web streaming, video conferencing, and social media.
Outside of work, I enjoy playing guitar in a punk band, performing comedic content on youtube, and producing independent films. I am a husband, father, puppet maker, and Beard and tattoo enthusiast. I can always be convinced to go to lunch instead of going to the gym, and I am always available to talk tech or movies or about the decay of modern society - whatever interests you.
Hi there, Anthony Dalton here - but you can call me Tony - and I’m the Digital Cultures Media Technologist and an adjunct instructor here at Muhlenberg College. (There’s a lot of words there.) I primarily work with the Department of Media and Communication, supporting students, staff, and faculty with media technologies and teaching a few labs and courses. During the summer and winter months, I work alongside Instructional Design and Media Services in the Office of Information Technology, helping with research, design, implementation, and instruction of varied campus technologies. While I do have a set of usual responsibilities, my job often calls upon my other passions and interests including digital storytelling, video game preservation, web and graphic design - even woodworking, repurposing, and prop-building. Whether I’m embedded in MediaCom, stationed in the basement of OIT, or out and about on campus, I’m always game for a dose of silliness, a dash of geekiness, and a whole lot of play.
Hello everyone! I’m Jeff Yorgey and my official title here at Muhlenberg is Media Technician. In so many words, what that means is I help integrate, support, and maintain any presentation media technology in the classrooms and around campus. In addition, I sometimes work closely with faculty and students to create media of all types (video, audio, presentation, etc). As you might imagine, my role here always keeps me on my toes and ready for any of the above mentioned things to happen. You won’t ever see me complain though because my passions are music, video production, and 21st century technology. When I’m not on campus I like to write and record original music, hit the roads of west end Allentown for a run, or watch a new movie.
Hi! I’m Alison Diefenderfer, instructional technologist here at Muhlenberg. I’m happy to discuss how to build things (and fix!) things in Canvas, our institution’s Learning Management System. In a given day, you can find me reading up on or researching technology innovations within higher education, testing possible solutions and remedies to current technical instances to optimize user experiences, working on web spaces or documentation, dabbling in Adobe Spark, collaborating on videos, or preparing for upcoming professional development workshops related to campus technologies.
