Bio
Aaron Bahmer has served as the director of Instructional Technology at Eastern Wyoming College (EWC) since the department’s inception in 2001. He is the administrator for the EWC learning management system (LMS), which has included Jones Knowledge, WebCT, Blackboard, and, currently, CampusCruiser, and is starting training on Instructure Canvas for a summer 2018 deployment at EWC. Bahmer started his career at EWC as a faculty member in 1998. Through his position at EWC, he has been a member of the Wyoming Distance Education Consortium (WyDEC), a group comprised of higher education distance learning professionals from each of the seven Wyoming community colleges and the University of Wyoming. The WyDEC has offered annual professional development conferences in Wyoming, debated distance education issues, provided leadership in distance learning, and developed the WyCLASS website (wyclass.org) which compiles a statewide listing of all higher ed distance classes into a single catalog each semester and allows students to create registration requests for classes throughout the state.
