Let's welcome the new Moderator of the LINCS Integrating Technology group

Hello Integrating Technology Colleagues,

It's my pleasure to announce our new LINCS Integrating Technology group moderator, Ashly Winkle. Through her many wonderful contributions over the years as a member of this group I feel like I know her, especially as a field leader in the use of HyperDocs.  I have included  more information about her below. Please welcome Ashly as our new group moderator!

Ashly Winkle is the Technology & Distance Learning Specialist for TCALL @ Texas A&M. She is a Journeyman 2 Technology Coach who started in adult education as a volunteer for the Literacy Council of Tyler in Tyler, Texas in 2013. She immediately fell in love with adult education and became an HSE Teacher within a matter of months. There, she taught HSE and ABE classes while also taking on roles of  Director of Distance Learning, PD Coordinator, and Trainer. In August of 2020, Ashly started her position with Texas Center For Advancement in Learning (TCALL) where she is heavily involved with Texas AEL Distance Learning, content development, project management, and the Technology Integration Coach program. She is extremely passionate about teaching, training, and integrating technology into adult education instruction. Ashly has an M.S. in Teaching & Learning with a specialization in Teaching Leadership and an M.S. in Business Management with a specialization in Online Education.

I want to extend my deepest appreciation to those who organized the farewell event last Friday, and to the nearly fifty people who attended. It was deeply moving for me, an event that I will always remember.  As I mentioned then, I plan to remain a LINCS member and, of course, as a member of the Integrating Technology group. I am comforted knowing the group's leadership is in Ashly's hands
