Meaning where in the path of the Sharepoint web site/app should the assembly reside? My module is currently not being loaded. Does it have to be in the GAC?

It does need to be in the GAC in any servers that could possibly run your module (if it's pertaining to a web page, that means all web front ends). You can have SharePoint 2010 automatically deploy solution files to your farm, a process that includes automatically deploying .dll's to the GAC.

$solution = Add-SPSolution c:/pathname/solution.wsp
Install-SPSolution $solution -gacdeployment
