Dr. Stowers utilizes emerging technologies to engage students through her online class PA 757: E-government and other IT classes. The online e-government class is very positively evaluated by students, who report enjoying its multi-media aspects, project-based learning, online team projects, and research assignments. Dr. Stowers integrates research with instruction in that students learn about the variety of e-government activities by collecting data from American cities for a joint San Francisco State University-Rutgers University survey on e-governance. Dr. Stowers combines efforts to engage students in technology and IT Management with scholarly work in the area.
