CEET Director wins Blackboard Catalyst Award

Amy Peach, Director of Instructional Technology and Adjunct Faculty, won the Blackboard Catalyst Award for Exemplary Course Design in 2014 for her design work in EDU 234 (Philosophical Foundations of Education).  This course is mastery-based and requires a high skill level in the basics before students can progress to more challenging tasks.  The course was cited for its innovative use of adaptive release and non-linear teaching methods designed to provide highly individualized support for all students.
