Spotlight

Why We Do What We Do….

Inspiring learners is at the very heart of “why” I do what I do. The Spotlight entails publications, dissertations, presentations, recognitions, grants, dissertations, or any successful accomplishments that learners have achieved during their time as a student in the Digital Learning and Leading program at Lamar University. Some of the students in this list are current graduates, current students, and some were part of a blended rotation offered in the Educational Technology Leadership program. Take a gander at some of the student highlights I recommend:
