During the visit, Reville met with UWW director Ingrid Bracey, who described the program’s model. Kyle Stephanie Kraus, instructional designer and trainer with CPE E-learning, provided an overview of Blackboard Learn, and Nutrition instructor Patricia Beffa-Negrini and Geosciences doctoral candidate and instructor Sean Fitzgerald showed how they teach online General Education courses popular with UWW students using Blackboard Learn. UWW students Audley Robinson, studying marketing and sales, and Joe Garland, studying American political advocacy, gave Reville a tour of their online courses, focusing on UWW’s individualized degree-planning and prior-learning portfolio writing processes.
“It was truly an honor to host Secretary Reville and to have the opportunity to share with him UWW’s innovative educational model,” said Bracey.
