KathyKathy Beauchene came to CCRI in 1979 to direct the Knight Campus Writing Center. In 1986 she became a full-time faculty member in the English Department, where she teaches oral communication and writing classes. She began her foray into online teaching in 2000 when she taught the Composition I telecourse through WebCT (now Blackboard). Since then she has enhanced her on-campus classes with Blackboard tools, such as quizzes, the discussion board, and content modules.

Currently, she teaches a fully online composition course. In addition to her Blackboard experience, she is familiar with My CCRI's features, Microsoft Office products, and Word Press. She developed and maintains the Communication site.

As an advocate of technology in the classroom, she has presented at CCRI Professional Day workshops as well as at local and regional conferences. Also, Kathy has received a video conference and two WebCT fellowships that have allowed her to explore the full capabilities of these two technologies.

She is excited about being a faculty IT mentor and invites you to contact her with your technology concerns—classroom related or otherwise.
