JCC Workshop Instructor Receives Award from Continuing Education Association of NY

On November 8, Jefferson Community College (JCC) long-time workshop instructor, Katherine Doe Johnson of Watertown, received an Outstanding Continuing Education Instructor Award bestowed by the Continuing Education Association of New York (CEANY) at its annual conference held in Saratoga Springs.

The Outstanding Continuing Education Instructor Award is bestowed to an individual who has demonstrated innovation in teaching, student centered approach to teaching, ability to impact students’ lives, and dedication to lifelong learning.

Johnson began teaching workshops in 1989 when popular topics of interest were   orientation to the internet, what you need to know about email, Lotus, microcomputers for senior citizens and learning more about personal computers. Johnson’s dedication to lifelong learning is evident with her ability to adapt and grow with the progress of technology over the course of twenty-three years.

“Today, Mrs. Johnson is the go-to instructor for teaching Microsoft Excel and Intermediate Excel 2010,” says Andrea C. Pedrick, coordinator of community services at JCC. “Her reputation for excellence in the classroom and following of adult learners has organizations asking for her by name when registering for workshops.”

Jefferson offers six series of non-credit workshops held on campus and at various locations in communities of Jefferson and Lewis counties.  Workshop series are technology, professional growth, personal enrichment, certificate and pre-certification, and allied health.  Visit www.sunyjefferson.edu for a complete listing of workshops and registration information.
