LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) is growing and needs additional faculty. In an effort to expand our faculty base, the College will host a public information session Wednesday, June 26, at 5:30 p.m., room 216, in the Center for Arts and Technology Building to conduct an open discussion about current and future program offerings and modern curriculum delivery models.
"We are particularly interested in talking to people about teaching online," says Tom Goulette, Vice President of Academic Affairs. "Online learning is a rapidly growing segment of our program offerings and both students and faculty enjoy the flexibility that this instructional model offers. The biggest advantage of taking an online course is that you don't have to come to campus. You can work on your coursework at a time convenient to your schedule, and still be part of a vibrant learning community."
"Teaching online can be very rewarding," says Sann Lavallee, Chair of the College's Computer Science Program and Online Learning Coordinator. "Students who would never voice their opinions in a traditional class often find themselves becoming class leaders because online levels the playing field. Everyone has the same opportunity to participate. Students and faculty enjoy the ability to participate in an online format and not have the requirement to come to campus every week for scheduled class sessions."
