San Antonio Welcomes National e-Learning Conference

 San Antonio Welcomes National e-Learning Conference
 
The 2013 e-Learning Conference  recently  brought more than 400  Instructional Technology Council Members (ITC) to San Antonio. The pre-conference workshops were held Feb. 17 at San Antonio College, and the conference was held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Alamo Colleges Chancellor, Dr. Bruce Leslie welcomed the attendees and introduced Mayor Julian Castro as he too, welcomed the technologists to San Antonio at the Welcome Reception. Bringing our Texas hospitality, Alamo Colleges provided the entertainment in the form of the Campanas de America Mariachi, led by Maestro Juan Ortiz, who performed for the audience.

During the second day of the conference, SAC psychology professor Dr. Pam Hill, was recognized Feb. 19 at the ITC Recognition luncheon. She received the “Distinguished Educators Award” and a plaque commemorating her excellence and dedication to online learning. Hill was nominated for her work in online teaching.

In addition to  teaching, Hill mentors her colleagues and designed a ‘master course’ that she shared with colleagues at Northwest Vista and Northeast Lakeview Colleges. Hill joined the Alamo Colleges  in 1985.  She will be retiring in May.

As a founding faculty member and (then) Dean of Extended Services, Community Outreach and Distance Education at Palo Alto College, Hill has been through a long process to get where she is today. She hopes to continue as an adjunct professor after retirement. “I have been ahead of my time, but I believe faculty will truly be able to serve students at a distance,” Hill said. “I would still like to provide a mentoring service to my colleagues.” 

Kyle Haley, who has taken online classes at SAC, PAC, St. Philip’s College,  and Northwest Vista College, was also honored at the awards luncheon. With a 4.0 GPA and an impressive academic background, Haley was selected as the “2013 Outstanding eLearning Student.” As only a true online learner could, he accepted the award via a video greeting that was played during the luncheon. Haley is a full-time programmer at USAA and is completing two associate’s degrees in English and Math. He said that the convenience of being able to take courses online has been the key to his success.

Helen Torres, SAC’s Director of Partnerships & Extended Services, is on the ITC’s national board, and was instrumental in facilitating this conference. “It was an honor for us to be the host institution,” Torres said. “Making it even sweeter, we knew one of our faculty members, Dr. Pam Hill, and an Alamo Colleges’ student, Kyle Haley, were going to be recognized.”
