Lynne West understands the 21 st century learner and how curriculum writing translates to the classroom and student engagement by helping teachers find real-world examples to draw students into the learning process. Lynne has been tremendously helpful in working with our faculty both in person and online. Her focus with individual teachers or departments has been customized to meet their needs in the curriculum development and review process, ensuring alignment between content, assessment, and the learning plan. Not only have I seen the results on paper but also in the classroom. Lessons are more intentional and refined, leading to stronger instruction and positive student outcomes!
Lynne’s holistic approach to technology-enhanced learning is inspiring. She emphasized technology should not be the sprinkles on top of the teaching/learning environment, it should be integrated into teaching strategy and effective learning. Her one week workshop is an excellent teaching example: clear explanations, classroom pace tailored to student’s need, methodologic guidance, etc. She provided us with lots of materials, and always ensured we had enough time to practice, to exchange ideas, and ask questions. We learned so much from her and from each other. I left the workshop with many new teaching ideas and cannot wait to apply them in my own classroom. Thank you Lynne for having offered such a fantastic workshop and made the learning so enjoyable!
