Ryan Schwallie graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Ryan began working for the Information Technology department in the spring of his sophomore year and filled positions at the Help Desk, Setup Room and as a Field Technician. In the spring semester of his junior year he was accepted into New York Six’ Instructional Technology Apprenticeship Program (ITAP) and worked closely with the Educational Technology group.
During his time as an apprentice Ryan developed and implemented a Photoshop workshop series that was later presented at EDUCAUSE’s NERCOMP in Providence, Rhode Island. “The ITAP program was a great outlet for my technical skills in a creative and open environment. I learned a tremendous amount from my mentor, colleagues at St. Lawrence, as well as colleagues from the rest of the NY6.” After graduating, Ryan accepted a position at Cornell University’s Central IT department with aspirations of continuing his work with Educational Technology.
