ORGWIDE’S JENNIFER TOWNES RECEIVES PHD IN EDUCATION

Memphis, Tennessee – Orgwide proudly announces that technical production specialist, Jennifer Townes is now known as Dr. Townes as she receives her Doctorate in Education this spring from the University of Memphis. Her dissertation, “Strategies for Technology Integration for Teachers Faced with Limited Access to Technology” was successfully defended in March, 2016.

Dr. Townes background is in education, and after receiving her Master’s degree in educational technology, she began teaching computing strategies. This position evolved into coaching her colleagues on best practices when using technology for instruction.

She will continue to support Orgwides’ partners and clients in developing courses that integrate the increasing flexibility of technology while taking advantage of the foundations and cornerstones of a solid background and training in education.
