Congratulations to the Colorado State University Class of 2013! This afternoon, CSU online students enjoyed a graduation luncheon with family and faculty before heading off to turn their tassels in the official Colorado State graduation ceremonies.
The luncheon also featured the inaugural OnlinePlus Innovative Educator (OPIE) Award, given to Gena Sandberg, Human Development and Family Studies online instructor.
“The OPIE award is our opportunity to recognize a faculty member who has worked hard to engage with students, exemplifying outstanding instruction and relationship building in an online program,” said Jordan Fritts, CSU OnlinePlus interim associate provost. “As online education advances, we’re excited to recognize faculty across the university for their achievements in our University’s online programs,” he explained.
Colorado State University OnlinePlus congratulates and thanks Sandberg. Her contributions to the online Human Development and Family Studies program at CSU help make it a valuable option for students looking to finish their bachelor’s degree online.
“Sandberg makes online learning easier to manage for her students, and putting students’ needs first is what makes an outstanding educator – one that CSU is proud to have,” Fritts said.
