The learning experiences in my EDTC course work at Tarleton State prepared me for numerous opportunities, including my current role as Director of Distance Learning for Trinity Valley Community College. I have led universities through Learning Management migrations and continue to develop professional development programs for faculty in higher education. The program provided me with pertinent experiences to build my knowledge about education, technology, and leadership. The program not only prepared me to be a leader in the field today, but prepared me for the future of instructional technology and design.
