The Department of Distance Education at Hodges University welcomes Dr. Patricia Gordin to its staff. Ms. Gordin will work on several of the department’s initiatives and selected projects.
Dr. Terry McMahan, President of Hodges University, states that, due to the explosive growth of the University and its distance Education program, Gordin’s assistance is timely. “Students are seeking courses that meet their schedules and circumstances,” he said. “More and more learners are requiring flexibility in program structure to accommodate their other responsibilities, such as full-time jobs, family needs or economic restrictions. With these constraints, students shop for courses that best accommodate their schedules and learning styles. We have seen phenomenal increases in the numbers of students using this technology and we’re grateful to have Dr. Grodin join us.”
Gordin has been an adjunct faculty member in the School of Professional Studies at Hodges for the past couple of semesters, teaching graduate education courses. She is also a well-versed, information and instructional technologist.
Dr. Gordin received her doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of South Florida; a Master of Education from Florida Gulf Coast University; and an MBA from the University of South Florida.
