MOUNT VERNON—Five professors from Brewton-Parker College’s Division of Education will present a paper at the Georgia Association of Teacher Educators (GATE) annual conference in Savannah Oct. 11. The conference serves three state professional teachers organizations: GATE, Georgia Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (GACTE) and Georgia Association of Independent Colleges for Teacher Education (GAICTE).


Dr. David W. Moffett, division chair, will join professors Dr. Melba Claxton, Prof. Skye Jordan, Prof. Pat Mercer and Prof. Barbara Reid to present their joint paper, “Applying Asynchronous Solutions to the Multi-Tasking Realities of a Teacher Education Faculty Unit: Case Study.” The paper was selected by a blind review from the GATE organization for the conference’s presentation schedule, which focuses on promoting educational technology and distance learning.


“Faculty members of our division are indeed honored to have our paper proposal presentation highlighting the early stages of our utilizing learning management system software in accreditation work accepted via the scholarly review process,” said Dr. Moffett. “Through our presentation, teacher educators from across the state will discover how our education division is utilizing available technology here at Brewton-Parker College to complete a considerable amount of accreditation work in addition to other duties and responsibilities.”

Provost Dr. T. Ronald Melton is excited by the honor and educational prestige of the college’s Education faculty’s inclusion at the joint educators’ conference.

“It is quite an honor to have BPC faculty members selected to give a presentation at the GATE conference,” said Dr. Melton. “This is a sign of significant professional achievement. I congratulate all who are involved, and I am confident that they will do an outstanding job.”
