Atlantic Cape Community College
Cheryl Knowles-Harrigan, a newly appointed full-time instructor in art, has been teaching accredited courses in the Arts, Humanities, and English as a Second Language department at Atlantic Cape Community College (ACCC) since 1990. She has taught not only in the traditional classroom but also via Pictel conferencing systems between sites, as well as at a distance through mail correspondence. She currently teaches both online and in the traditional classroom.
Knowles-Harrigan earned a BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art (now the University of the Arts) and a 4-year certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She served as the ACCC art gallery coordinator for 5 years before beginning a career as an instructional technologist in 1999. In 2000, she completed an MA in instructional technology at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.
As part of a traveling team of distance education professionals, Knowles-Harrigan has lectured and trained New Jersey community college faculty on the topic of effective online education. She has also helped develop customized modules of instruction for faculty and students new to the online environment. Knowles-Harrigan has developed a CD-ROM tutorial for WebCT courses to increase student retention and ensure a better online learning experience. She also designs interactive, Web-based modules for online and traditional art students.
Outside the classroom and away from the computer, Knowles-Harrigan teaches enrichment sessions in art and art history; her students range from kindergartners to senior citizens. Her oil paintings and mixed media constructions have been displayed throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York and have received favorable critical reviews.shooter gameskids gamesword gamesmatch 3 gamespc gamesaction gamesmanagement games
