Josh Lund is a senior instructional designer at DePaul, and a former teacher turned mad scientist. After completing a BM in music theory/composition at St. Olaf College and an MM in composition at Northern Illinois University, he spent six years teaching instrumental music at Elgin Academy, William Penn University and Central College. He also worked as an active performer and clinician before returning to Illinois to complete his MSEd in instructional technology at Northern Illinois.

A life straddling two different disciplines, technology and the fine arts, has led him to researching teaching technology in the collaborative arts, multimedia and recording technologies, and user interface design. He is really enjoying the fact that his job lets him play with technology tools all day and then teach others to use them. Josh still writes and performs on occasion, teaches the occasional wayward bass or guitar student, and is an avid gardener and disc golfer. He enjoys cooking, traveling and the outdoors, particularly when his family is also involved.
