Thursday, September 5, 2013

Julie Kimbler has joined the Distance Learning Center as the Coordinator of the Master of Science in Distance Education Leadership (DEL) program.  The program is designed for professionals working within distance/online higher education administration, policy analysis, and academics. Julie will manage all aspects of the program.  Additionally, she’ll lead research, assessment, and faculty development efforts within distance education at UW-Platteville.

Prior to joining the DLC, Kimbler served as Dean of Student Services at Bryant & Stratton College. She has also served as an academic program director, an adjunct faculty member (both online and a face-to-face), within K-12 as a technology coordinator and teacher, and as a business and training analyst for a large aerospace company.
“Through these experiences, I was fortunate to be exposed to large and small organizations, public and private education, and many technologies. I have a passion for education which includes my own personal and professional growth,” Julie said, who is currently working on her PhD within the Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences (GSCIS) – Computing Technology in Education, at Nova Southeastern University.
The curriculum for the Master of Science in Distance Education Leadership is built on and grounded in conceptual and practical frameworks from the disciplines of leadership, learning theory, business, organization theory, behavior and development, and analytics. While the focus of the program is on distance/online higher education, professionals in K-12 distance education, corporate, and military environments will find value in the program. Classes include topics such as diversity; organizational wellness; participative problem-solving and implementation; and technology and performance.
