Anne H. Moore honored with emerita status
March 27, 2014
Anne H. Moore, associate vice president for learning technologies in Information Technology at Virginia Tech, has been conferred the title of “associate vice president emerita” by the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors.
The title of emeritus may be conferred on retired professors, associate professors, and administrative officers who are specially recommended to the board of visitors by Virginia Tech President Charles W. Steger. Nominated individuals who are approved by the board of visitors receive an emeritus certificate from the university.
A member of the Virginia Tech community since 1995, Moore has worked to leverage university activities, services, programs, and technology to enhance student learning and the educational experience.
She was the founding chair of the Electronic Campus of Virginia, a cooperative effort of public and private institutions in the commonwealth focused on providing e-learning to Virginians.
In addition, Moore worked with colleagues to coordinate the award-winning Faculty Development Institute (now called the Networked Learning Institute), which creates and supports a robust environment for teaching, learning, and discovery for faculty and students.
Beginning in 1996, Moore led the Center for Innovation in Learning, which provided more than $3 million in grants to faculty supporting more than 120 instructional projects. The center sponsored the XCaliber Awards to recognize initiatives that integrated technology in learning activities.
In collaboration with the Graduate School, Moore also developed the Graduate Education Development Institute, which seeks to address the needs of graduate students working to incorporate new technologies for teaching at Virginia Tech.
Moore played an instrumental role in merging Learning Technologies and the Institute for Distance and Distributed Learning into the new Technology-enhanced Learning and Online Strategies organization, which seeks to foster collaborations across the university that advance technology-enhanced learning, enable high-quality distance learning programs, and support online content in on-campus and hybrid courses.
Moore received her bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and Ed.D. from the College of William and Mary.
