ECU Professor Wins Top Teaching Honors


An East Carolina University professor is the first online-only instructor at the university to receive one of the state's highest teaching honors.

Abbie Brown has earned the University of North Carolina Board of Governors Award for Teaching Excellence.

Brown is a professor of instructional technology in the College of Education and teaches exclusively online. Many of his courses focus on teaching the teachers of distance education programs.

"I think in some ways this recognizes the entire university's effort in providing a quality online experience," he said.

Brown will receive a commemorative bronze medallion and $12,500 cash prize.
