A Snapshot of Kyle and Nil
On any particular day, Kyle may be helping ACU freshmen craft a sentence, English majors value British poetry or American film, or faculty produce their first digital story. He's been teaching at Abilene Christian since 1999 and in 2006 began providing educational technology leadership, first in the Adams Center for Teaching and Learning and now in the AT&T Learning Studio he directs.
A native of Brazil, Nil moved to Texas in 1998 to complete a masters in Digital Media at ACU. Since joining the Art & Design faculty, he has taught classes in graphic design, product design and photography along with study abroad classes in England, Italy, Spain and most recently Uruguay. This last year he became Dr. Santana, completing a dissertation in philosophy and aesthetics from IDSVA even as he developed ACU's new emphasis in photography.
