The University of Texas at Tyler recently announced that Associate Dean of the Soules College of Business Dr. Kerri Camp received an "Outstanding Distance Learning Faculty" Award at this year's Northeast Texas Consortium of Colleges and Universities Distance Learning Conference.

Camp was recognized for developing innovative online and hybrid marketing courses within the Soules College of Business. She engages students in the online environment through the use of Flipgrid video discussion and challenges her students with actual client projects with businesses and organizations across East Texas.

"We congratulate Kerri on this recognition by the Northeast Texas Consortium for her creative use and support of distance learning technology in the classroom," said Dr. Amir Mirmiran, provost and vice president for academic affairs.

Each higher education institution in the consortium annually nominates faculty and support personnel to be recognized at the conference as outstanding leaders in distance education.

"Kerri is one of the best examples of quality online education instruction at UT Tyler," said Dr. Colleen Swain, associate provost for undergraduate and online education. "The innovations in her own courses, her dedication to student success in online education as well as her spirit of sharing and collaboration with colleagues across the university make her an ideal candidate for this award."

A member of the Soules College of Business faculty since 2008, Camp holds a master of business administration in management and a Ph.D. in merchandising. She has industry experience in health care administration, marketing consulting, retail promotions and sales. Her primary research includes health care management issues.
