Brown Library Open House Luncheon

Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? Not us!!

As you have heard, there have been a lot  of changes in the Brown Library building and we would like to invite faculty and staff to have lunch on us and see the changes for yourselves.  As part of our Spring In-Service, on Friday January 3rd from Noon – 1:30 we’re hosting a luncheon and providing short tours of the new services and locations in Brown Library. Please make plans to be there -- because the more you know about our services, the more students will know about how to connect to academic success.

Department Name Change Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the Department of Distance Learning & Instructional Technology changed its name to eLearning & Instructional Technology or eLIT in acronym, effective November 7, 2013.

This name change reflects the revolution of our services, as we have expanded our services and supports in the past 8 years as follow:

  • Identify faculty and students’ needs in teaching and learning at a distance.
  • Utilize the advanced asynchronous learning delivery system to reach students who may have been unable to participate in the on campus learning environment.
  • Encourage and support the use of technology and course management software in the face-to-face, hybrid, and online learning environment.
  • Provide effective training and resources for faculty and staff professional development.
  • Improve the quality of VWCC’s online learning courses through rigorous assessment efforts.
  • Manage and support VCCS Shared Services Distance Learning Program (SSDL).

Even though we changed our name, the products, service, support, and long term commitment towards our faculty, students, and staff will remain unchanged. The eLIT will continue to operate in its current structure and your contacts will remain unchanged.

You will notice our name change on all of our correspondence and promotional materials. Our department email address has changed to eLIT@virginiawestern.edu. Our web domain has changed to http://www.virginiawestern.edu/elit/index.php

Team eLIT thanks you for all your continued support and confidence. We look forward to taking our department to the next level with you.

With Thanks

Over the past 8 years, each of you have made Virginia Western a wonderful, warm, and special place to work. As I leave the College to take the next step in my professional career, I will take the many laughs, smiles, and hugs with me fondly. You make Virginia Western a transformative place of hope for our students and are to be commended for all you do.  Best wishes for the future!
