ASU Education Prof Honored

May 09, 2014

Dr. Kim Livengood of the Angelo State University curriculum and instruction faculty has received the Exemplary Course Award for 2014 from Blackboard Inc., an international company that develops education software, including its signature Blackboard learning management system.

Livengood won the award for her online course, Applied Research, which combines a focus on collecting and interpreting data to achieve specific educational goals with developing a project based on students’ own research and applying the concepts learned within their own classroom.  She will be recognized at the annual Blackboard World Conference in July in Las Vegas.

Launched in 2000, the Exemplary Course Award honors faculty and course designers around the world with the goal of identifying best practices for designing engaging online courses.  Courses are evaluated in four major areas: course design; interaction and collaboration; assessment; and learner support.  Livengood is the first ASU faculty member to receive the award.

An associate professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Livengood previously was honored with the 2011 ASU President’s Award for Faculty Excellence in Teaching.  She earned her doctorate in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis on multicultural education from Texas A&M University, a Master of Science in secondary education from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and a Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Texas Tech University.
