Aaron Johnson Headshot

In 2002, I began my teaching career at a private high school in Troy, Ohio. When I moved to Colorado to pursue graduate studies, I wanted to maintain the relationships I had built with my students, the staff, and school leaders. I wanted to keep teaching. Enter online education.

That Fall of 2005, I transitioned from the brick-and-mortar setting to an online classroom, developing courses and teaching online students for the next eight years.

During this time, I began working in the Educational Technology department at Denver Seminary where I am currently the Associate Dean of Educational Technology. I spend my days leading our Ed. Tech. team, and directing our online programming. The most rewarding part of my work is helping faculty create better online courses and to become better online teachers.

My areas of expertise are creating community and facilitating relationships within the online classroom. I want the personality, expert voice, and character of teachers to impact online students. My current book project is Teaching with Zoom: Online Teaching and Training with Videoconferencing, a book I began work on in the Summer of 2019 and will release in the Summer of 2020. After that, I’ll begin work on the third book in the EOT series.

I currently live in Castle Rock, Colorado with my wife, Jenah,  and two amazing daughters. I’m an artist at heart, who loves to fly fish and be in nature. Our family loves  to hike, play, and go on adventures together.
