Lorelle VanFossen To Teach 4 Credit WordPress College Course

Huge congratulations goes out to Lorelle VanFossen for being selected to teach at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington. Lorelle will be teaching an Introduction To WordPress course that will reward students with four college credits. While WordPress in the classroom has become more common across the world, very few are actually awarding students college credits. Here is the information regarding the course:

Beginning January 10 through March 20 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, this 10 week class (20 hours) is from 6-8PM. Registration is through Clark College. Contact the Clark College Computer Technology Office (CTEC), Reesa McAllister at 360-992-2106 for details. You will need the following when you call: Item Number 4538 and Course ID CTEC 280.

I’ve been lucky enough to meet Lorelle in person a few times within my lifespan and the one consistent quality that she has is her enthusiastic ability to teach. She loves teaching people about WordPress and I think she loves seeing that glow in peoples eyes when they Get It. Again, congrats Lorelle. Be sure to tell us about your experience with teaching WordPress at the college level.

  1. I don’t know Lorelle, but I made great use of many of her articles when I was learning how to tweak my WordPress blog. I’m sure she’ll be awesome as an instructor.

  2. I do hope she blogs this experience! Clark College is quite close to home :-) Would love to see some guest posts from her students as well! There certainly is something fantastic when people “get it” and I trust a lot of that will happen in this class and in many more to come.

    Thanks for the post Jeffro!

  3. I’m just finishing up (co-)teaching a course like this myself, in the Queens College (CUNY) Graphic Arts department. I’ll have more reflections on my blog http://teleogistic.net in the upcoming weeks, but I will say preliminarily that it was a cool experience, and I think that WordPress was a helpful way to teach a lot of more principles about web development and design.
