Doug Rowlett
Dr. Rowlett earned his Bachelor's (1970) and Master's (1974) degrees in English from Texas Tech University and his Doctorate in English from Rice University (1981). He began his career in higher education in 1976 as an adjunct instructor of English Composition at Houston Community College. In 1989 he was hired as a full-time instructor of English at HCC, where he has taught and worked for nearly 30 years. As a native Houstonian, he has dedicated his professional life to improving education for under-served populations in the Houston area and advocating for improved quality of life for all the citizens of his native city. He loves teaching in all its aspects, but he also has a love for technology and its application to new solutions to old problems. Thus, during that very small window of opportunity when it was possible to enter the field of educational technology without formal training in the field, he was able to assume greater positions of responsibility within the HCC system by combining the two great professional loves of his life: teaching and technology. Dr. Rowlett and his wife Linda have lived in Industry, Texas (population 304), and operated Paradox House Vineyard since 2001, where they grow premium quality wine grapes for the Texas wine industry and enjoy small-town Texas life while still remaining attached and involved in the cultural and professional life of Houston.

"IT careers cover the full range of computer-related activities, including servicing and repairing computers, building networks, programming computers, designing and writing programs and applications, building networks, troubleshooting and protecting hardware and software from internal and external threats and teaching consumers how to use and apply computer applications in their daily lives and businesses," said Dr. Douglas Rowlett, director of Houston Community College's Center of Excellence for Digital and Information Technology.
"We also offer a full range of industry-specific certifications for those who are already working in the IT field and need to upgrade their skills or complete a particular certification for their current job requirements," Rowlett said.

In 2009, Doug Rowlett, director of educational technology services at Houston Community College's (HCC) Southwest College, applied for and received a $100,000 grant to pilot emerging digital tools in classrooms.
He purchased 100 Kindle e-book readers, 35 iPads, and 30 dual-screen tablet/e-book readers from a now-defunct manufacturer. The Kindles-used primarily in English classes-did not change instructors' teaching styles, but students who switched to electronic books saved money, not to mention their backs, by eliminating the need to haul several pounds of books around in their backpacks, Rowlett says. After completing a three-semester pilot in fall 2010, administrators at HCC Southwest remain convinced of mobile computing's potential in the classroom. The college recently made plans to equip every full-time faculty member with an iPad, as many as it can within the parameters of its budget. "We've proved these devices work in classrooms," says Rowlett, who says the technology fared well in anatomy, biology, and physiology pilots. Like most colleges, HCC Southwest can't afford to purchase a mobile device for every student. But to ensure student access, the college is working to make course content-such as electronic textbooks and the school's learning management system-accessible on any mobile computing device a student owns. Most students at least have a smartphone, Rowlett says. With the right infrastructure, the hope is that they can access the resources from there. "We are going in the direction of becoming as platform-agnostic as we can be, so students can access educational content on whatever device they bring on campus," he says.
