Mastering Online Learning Leadership

Also from yesterday’s inbox…

Mastering Online Learning Leadership
Dear Michael,

“There are very few programs focused on planning and troubleshooting needs at the administrator level. This truly distinguishes the OLC Leadership Mastery Series from ANY other I have seen in the field of online learning,” is how Sherri Restauri describes her OLC Mastery Series experience. Sherri has worked in higher education for over 17 years, currently as Director of Online Learning at the Coastal Office of Online Learning at Coastal Carolina University.

Sherri found this program to be ideal for administrators who are responsible for leading online learning initiatives at their institutions. Learn more about her experience.

Keep on Learning!

“This particular program was incredibly useful to me in allowing me the opportunity to see the major issues facing online learning administrators today laid out in a succinct manner, and to discuss those with colleagues in similar positions to my own.”

– Sherri Restauri, Director of Online Learning,
Coastal Office of Online Learning at Coastal Carolina University
