CWC prof gets award for distance education

Jun 10, 2012 - Staff

Central Wyoming College professor Angel Sparkman earned a Master Distance Educator Award at the Wyoming Distance Education Consortium spring conference held recently in Cody.

Sparkman was one of eight instructors from the state's community colleges and the Uni-versity of Wyoming recognized for their talents as distance educators.

When the Sparkman family moved back home to Mississippi last year, Angel continued to teach for CWC full time, using a variety of distance delivery methods including podcasts.

Sparkman has been active in the college's selection of learning management systems to improve distance delivery and is testing a new system this summer.

Though her business and accounting students are far away, she has developed an online community where students get to know her personally though they have never met.
