Mid-State’s Hageman is honored
For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Mid-State Technical College Fire Protection Technician Instructor Brandon Hageman was among 17 educators, globally, to receive the 2019 Blackboard Exemplary Course Program (ECP) Award.
The ECP Award recognizes faculty and course designers from schools, colleges, and universities around the world who develop engaging and innovative courses that represent the very best in technology and learning.
“It’s gratifying to be recognized for excellent course design by my peers in education,” Hageman said. “In speaking with students over the years, they never could really tell me what a good online course looked like, but they could describe a poor one. I made sure with this design to include redundancy throughout to ensure that students don’t have to click around trying to find their assignments. Facilitating an environment where students feel connected to their coursework was my end goal from the beginning.”
Hageman was selected as a winner for his course Strategies, Tactics and Incident Management in the College’s online Emergency Services Management program, which explores the principles of fire ground control through the use of personnel, equipment and extinguishing agents.
