Testimonials

Hear from others about the kind of work that I have provided over the years working with many different institutions and faculty to improve the teaching and learning experience for everyone.


“Lance was invited to come to the Community College of Rhode Island and, in a half-day workshop, inspire faculty to develop a culture of reflective practice. He was generous with his time and expertise throughout the planning process to share his knowledge with our faculty. It is a testament to his ability to engage authentically with our faculty and his command of a diverse set of teaching practices that he met this challenge and exceeded our expectations. His presentation embodied the principles he was advocating through regular points of reflection and sharing. “

“Lance Eaton’s plenary presentation titled “Fundamentals of OER: Everyone gets Pi” was the highlight of our Professional Development Day at Bunker Hill CC. Lance is a lively and relatable speaker. His command over the topic of Open Educational Resources and engaging style resonated well with Mathematics faculty. The material was engaging and hands-on. Lance’s mid-session cellphone activity energized the audiences. Participants took away real knowledge and actionable tips related to curating, implementing, licensing, and sharing, to use in development of OER courses. After walking off the podium, he was met with several of the participants, all waiting off-stage to further interact with him. Lance continued to bond with them off-stage by sharing his expertise. Lance consistently received high ratings on quality, content, and understanding in our feedback survey.”

” Lance Eaton conducted a session titled “Choice by Design: Using Hybrid Flexible Pedagogy to Empower Students” at the South Carolina Technical College System’s annual Faculty Institute.  Faculty from the 16 technical/community colleges were given resources to aid in the pedagogical process.  Lance’s presentation style and knowledge about the subject kept the audience engaged throughout the session.  Due to the positive feedback from Lance’s session at the Faculty Institute, we invited him to conduct a webinar for faculty and staff across the state.  The webinar, “Let’s Talk: Strategies for Meaningful Discussions & Rewarding Group Projects in Online Courses​,” was our most popular session for 2018.  Participants learned how to improve discussions in online courses, engage online students in meaningful group projects, and various other methods to engage students in online courses.  Lance’s ability to engage audiences and openness and flexibility to the audience needs makes him a joy to work with on professional development training.”

Lance delivered a workshop on digital service-learning for faculty and staff to help us expand civic engagement opportunities beyond the boundaries of time and location. He was very knowledgeable on the subject and his experience as a faculty member and instructional designer proved essential and useful in encouraging newcomers into the field of service learning.

He brought great energy, exceptional personal skills, professionalism, and expertise to the workshop. His sense of humor, strong work ethic, and passion for learning make him one the most dedicated and enthusiastic individuals with whom I’ve had the pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Lance as a facilitator and educator. He will bring his extensive skills, knowledge, and experience to help create an effective and engaging learning experience to your faculty and institution.
