GREENVILLE, Pa.—The final day of classes wrapped up recently for the first online December term at Thiel College.
The 15 classes, which covered both traditional and modern class materials, had 254 students registered. Classes covered topics in computer literacy, communications, psychology, research methods and Lutheran issues while others considered the narratives in sports documentaries and had students involved in modern diplomacy through online meetings.
“This online session born out of the way our semester was put together to deal with the pandemic was incredibly successful,” Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College Elizabeth Frombgen, Ph.D. said. “We created a best-of-both-worlds scenario for our students. We made it through an entire conventional semester with in-person classes—a format that our students wanted and that also provides the most beneficial learning format—and then we were able to offer an online setting for students to earn additional credits.”
Frombgen was one of 12 faculty members who taught during the December session, which began Nov. 30.
