bonfiniCindy Bonfini-Hotlosz : Web Design (M.A. Communications, West Virginia University, B.S. Computer Science, Ohio University) is the Chief Information Officer and Director of Production for JesuitNET, a consortium of the Jesuit Colleges and Universities in the United States. Cindy’s passion for production began in high school, writing and producing annual Christmas plays for the local elementary schools. She produced one of the first International Teleconferences Bridging the Gap: Education and Industry as part of a High Technology grant in 1989. In the late 1990s, she worked with NASA to produce several online courses and communication campaigns for their commercialization project, including a three-part teleconferencing series, Technology Transfer in Action. In her time with the Jesuit colleges, she has helped launch new online programs that span several disciplines. Her passion for story-telling has evolved as technology has evolved — keeping her on the “bleeding” edge. Bonfini taught Web design in Cagli in 2006, as well as this last summer in Cagli and Armagh.
