Julie Cruse has created engaging experiences, programs, and strategies across diverse media and industries for over a decade. She designed programs at two colleges, curricula for five colleges, engagement strategies for over twenty entities, and numerous interactive platforms "in out (and) thru" learning, sciences, health, games, and arts. Distinctions exceed thirty grants and honors for scholarly, artistic, and entrepreneurial excellence, including recognition as Outstanding Alumni in Innovation (Ohio University, Ohio Today, Summer 2009 p19).
Cruse holds Master's degrees in Media Arts and Sciences from Arizona State University and in Dance and Technology from The Ohio State University. In both programs she designed and researched mixed reality systems for holistic learning through play, collaboration, interaction, and movement to engage and sustain communities. Recent presentations include Games + Learning + Society, and Emerge: Artists + Scientists Redesign the Future.
As inaugural Instructional Technologist of Oberlin College Media Center (OCMC) Cruse designed and realized OCMC to support media in learning and research. Parallel to higher education, she consults to revitalize schools and communities, provides design and engagement services to private clients, and produces original research, inventions, and art.
