Hershey, PA—June 19, 2020—IGI Global editor Dr. Cynthia Mary Sistek-Chandler, from National University, USA, and editor of Exploring Online Learning Through Synchronous and Asynchronous Instructional Methods (IGI Global) was named the 2020 Higher Education Technology Leader Winner in the EdTech Awards, presented by EdTech Digest, for being one of the most exceptional leaders in educational technology based on her work in online pedagogy.

Initiated in 2010, the EdTech Awards are considered the largest recognition program in all of education technology. These awards recognize people in and around education for outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere. This annual program features categories in educational technology such as “cool tools, inspiring leaders and innovative trendsetters” across the K-12, higher education, and skills and workforce sectors.

This high recognition of Dr. Sistek-Chandler’s research and leadership in this field comes at a crucial time as K-12 and higher education institutions have shifted to online-only environments and are adjusting to this “new normal.”

Outlining her valuable research in this field is her IGI Global publication, Exploring Online Learning Through Synchronous and Asynchronous Instructional Methods, which provides relevant and detailed research on the applications of synchronous and asynchronous instructional pedagogies and discusses why they are critical to the design and implementation of contemporary online courses. This publication covers critical topics including student engagement, adaptive learning, online instruction, webcast, virtual learning, and more, making it an ideal reference for online instructors, instructional designers, curriculum developers, course designers, academicians, administrators, e-learning professionals, researchers, and students.
