Trombley talks online learning with Press-Gazette
UW-Green Bay’s Christina Trombley was featured in a front-page story on online learning in Thursday’s (Aug. 23) Green Bay Press-Gazette. And while we’re used to seeing Trombley in the news talking about business, this was the first time she’s been quoted in her new role — as the University’s director of Adult Degree Programs. Trombley talked about the benefits of online learning for returning students, and offered context on some of the trends our campus is seeing. “(Students) may have full-time jobs, have families, be caretakers and be very active in the community,” Trombley said. “This is a very accessible way to get education. … Students used to be in their 40s and 50s. We still get those, but the age count is lower. We’re seeing students who are a year or two out of getting an associate’s, all the way up.” Full story.
