This quarter’s instructor spotlight is . . .
As a teacher, Chuck finds it most important to be a learner. Recently, in the summer of 2010, he obtained his M.A. in Educational Technology from MSU. He began his journey to this degree with the certificate courses. From the beginning, he was sold on this program. For Chuck, it was not about getting a degree…it was about becoming better at what we do. The focus of the program is on becoming a better teacher, not on becoming a “techie.” Technology is just another tool that makes a great teacher even better.
Chuck earned his B.A. in Elementary Education from Trinity Christian College, his M.A. in Educational Technology from Michigan State University and plans to pursue a Ph.D. in Educational Technology at Michigan State…starting in Summer 2012.
Chuck is excited to begin a new adventure this summer. He has accepted a new job as the Director of Adult Studies in Education and Assistant Professor in Education at Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL (a suburb of Chicago). The program is designed for adult learners that desire to go back to school to obtain their education degree. It is a two year accelerated program that meets one night a week for four hours per class period. Chuck credits his “expertise” with Educational Technology as helping him stand out among other candidates during the interview process.
