Watson College of Education faculty member Florence Martin, along with her colleagues Ray Pastore and Mahnaz Moallem, are some of the faculty and staff exhibitors participating in today’s Wilmington Information Technology eXchange and Conference (WITX). The event, in its 11th year, brings students, faculty, staff and local technology vendors together to demonstrate the technologies they are developing or implementing.
Martin is an associate professor and program coordinator in Instructional Technology in the Department of Instructional Technology, Foundations and Secondary Education. She has taught at UNCW since 2007. In 2012, she became the program coordinator for instructional technology and helped launch the Online Learning Teaching certificate.
Beginning this summer, the Watson College of Education will offer a post-baccalaureate certificate in Online Teaching and Learning. The 18-credit hour program is designed to meet growing demand from K-12 schools, colleges and universities and businesses for professionals with the knowledge and skills to manage effective online and blended learning programs.
The instructional technology program has exhibited at WITX the last several years and this year Martin and her colleagues are highlighting the certificate as part of their exhibit.
"The Online Teaching and Learning certificate program is designed to meet the needs of K-12 educators, higher education faculty, instructional design specialists, chief learning officers, and other professionals and individuals who wish to design, develop, implement, manage and evaluate blended and online learning environments. Come visit the booth at WITX to learn more about the program," says Martin.
