Bud Hunt is the Director of Projects and Initiatives for SETDA. He comes to this work with twenty years of experience as a teacher, an instructional technologist, a facilitator, and a library administrator.
In his time with the Clearview Library District in northern Colorado, he served a highly committed team of librarians and support staff in their work to be of service to their community through access to information, tools, high quality resources and programming.
As an instructional technologist for the St. Vrain Valley School District, Bud worked to create environments that supported, and continue to support, innovative teaching and learning while preserving freedom, choice, and opportunity for all learners across multiple contexts.
His extensive experience in both pedagogy and technical systems helps him to build bridges between the educational and technological sides of educational institutions. Bud advises others on the thoughtful implementation of technology to support teaching and learning.
Early in his career, he taught high school language arts and journalism at Olde Columbine High School in Longmont, Colorado, where he learned about the importance of healthy human relationships in all matters of teaching and learning.
Bud writes curricula, book chapters, blog posts, articles, and far too many tweets. In all his work, written, spoken or otherwise, Bud aims to bridge and muddle contexts, with a specific emphasis on the intersections of the humanities and technology. He earned his Master’s degree in English at Colorado State University, where he was also a founding member of CSU’s local site of the National Writing Project.
In 2013, Bud was named a ConnectED Champion of Change.
