Sheri Prupis, VCCS Director of Teaching & Learning Technologies
Instructional designers at our colleges have worked tirelessly to help migrate thousands of courses into online formats. Training programs have been available to faculty members, helping them to think differently about teaching and learning as required with online instruction. In addition, webinars about Canvas, Zoom, and educational methodology skills such as creating and using objectives, assessments, and rubrics have been produced.
These instructional designers are members of the VCCS’s E-Learning and Educational Technologies Committee, also known as eLET.
The Virginia Community College System
Virginia’s General Assembly established the Virginia Community College System in 1966 to develop a new approach to providing educational opportunity and address a need for a comprehensive educational system. Today twenty-three Virginia community colleges on 40 campuses deliver quality higher education and workforce training throughout the state, with programs and courses to serve the distinct demands of every region and provide every Virginian the opportunity to gain an education.
