Welcome to my homepage where aspects of my professional, research, scholarly and instructional life will be shared with you.

I am Dr. Jasmine Renner a tenured full Professor in the Department of Education Leadership and Policy Analysis at East Tennessee State University, a Fulbright Specialist scholar, a 2015 Carnegie Diaspora Fellow and a 2014 Tennessee Board of Regents Maxine Smith Fellow. The Fulbright Specialist Scholar program by the  U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is the United States government’s  premiere flagship international faculty exchange program. Candidates are reviewed by peers in the same discipline and by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship board.  The grant award is administered by the Institute of International Education’s Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES). 

 Recently, I was awarded the 2017 Carnegie Diaspora (Alumni) Fellowship Award. The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (ADF) is funded by a two-year grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY), to support  short-term faculty fellowships for African-born academics.

Managed and administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE) in partnership with Quinnipiac University (QU), the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program is a scholar fellowship program for educational projects at African higher education institutions. The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program exemplifies Carnegie Corporation of New York's (CCNY's) enduring commitment to higher education in Africa. 

On this site also, you will find a variety of sneak peeks into my world of scholarship, research, instruction and service to the university and to the larger higher education community. Browse through the conference section and you’ll learn more about my most recent and past professional conference presentations, papers and invited talks. Since research and didactic reasoning is also part of my world, you may want to check out the research section to learn about my current research focus and initiatives.

  As a researcher and instructor, fluidity, continuous improvement and professional development are central to my world.  The E-Portfolio is a good place to learn more about the many aspects of my professional development. In case you have dropped by to learn about innovative instructional/teaching tools you may want to peruse my teaching resources, multi-media and eLearning resources.  The resources section contains valuable materials, on my work and outside resources on eLearning, mLearning, Law  and Social media.  The resources section also contains aspects of my professional engagements outside of ETSU globally and internationally and some of my creative initiatives and products such as audio books, paper back and kindle books.  

I currently reside in Johnson City, Tennessee and I am married to Sylvester Renner and have a six year old son Daniel Denzel Renner. 

You are welcome to my world online! Smile!
