Steve Zlotolow


Steve Zlotolow, Ph.D. has been an educator for over 45 years.  He began his career as a participant in Teacher Corps, a federally funded program intended to improve teaching in inner-city public schools. Following this, he taught middle school for eight years in an “open school” environment.   Always interested in educational innovation, Steve attended The University of Oklahoma earning a Ph.D. in Educational Technology and Instructional Design.  This is where the study of “Change”, “Change Process” and “Change Management” were formally introduced to him.  In the 13 years that followed, Dr. Zlotolow worked as an Instructional Designer at Central Michigan University.  At CMU he designed, developed and consulted with faculty to integrate innovative technology mediated instruction.  He also taught "Computers in Education" in the College of Education.  During this time, Dr. Zlotolow worked with Ronald Havelock to co-author the 2nd edition of the Change Agent’s Guide.  Dr. Zlotolow was later hired by San Jose State University to design and develop the University’s eCampus.  Today there is a robust online learning environment at SJSU for students to learn, for faculty to teach and for departments to innovate new digital programs.
