Catherine Datko has won 2018 Ron Lee Technology Award

Catherine Datko has worked as a faculty instructional designer in the California Community College system for five years. Currently she is teaching English as a Second Language at Pasadena City College. Her project is to develop an online course and e-textbook for a transfer-level community college writing class. She is creating the course under Creative Commons 4.0 non-commercial license, so it will be available for other instructors to utilize and adapt to their teaching context. The e-textbook component of her project will include images, interactive videos, and annotations, and will be an Open Education Resource. She is piloting the project this spring and fall.
