Two Lewis College faculty, Dr. Anne Lorio and Dr. Traci Sims, were named to the Georgia State University Office of the Provost Hall of Fame for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Lorio and Dr. Sims were among the 37 Georgia State employees, faculty and staff, who performed beyond the call of duty during these challenging months adjusting to virtual and partially virtual teaching and operating the university.
Dr. Lorio, a clinical associate professor of physical therapy, experimented with new interactive learning techniques and even studied Doctor of Physical Therapy students’ experiences for data on how to improve future online learning.
