Indianapolis, IN - January 14, 2014 -- American College of Education, a leading provider of online graduate programs for educators, will hold its 2014 Winter Commencement on Saturday, February 1, at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida. The college will confer more than 1,350 Master of Education degrees in Curriculum and Instruction, Educational Leadership and Educational Technology at the semi-annual event.

Gifted education expert Dr. Sally Dobyns will deliver the commencement address on recognizing and nurturing talent. Dobyns currently works with teaching faculty at the University of Connecticut and develops programs to enhance teaching and learning through the university’s Institute for Teaching and Learning. A former K-12 teacher, Dobyns has served on the faculty at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette and as a consultant to more than 100 school districts in the United States and South America.

“With the theme, ‘Inspiring Achievement,’ commencement will celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates, who are leaders in education with unlimited potential for motivating others to reach their goals,” said Dr. Shawntel Landry, interim president and provost for American College of Education. “We are honored to have Sally Dobyns deliver the commencement address. The time she spent as an educator in the K-12 environment has impacted every decision she has made as a trainer of teachers, and our graduates are sure to be inspired by the insights she will share.”

At the ceremony, American College of Education will also recognize Shawn Wigg of Jacksonville, Florida, as its Alumni Achievement Award recipient. Dubbing himself a lifelong learner, Wigg achieved a Master of Education in Educational Leadership at American College of Education after earning a Master of Business Administration at Western Governors University.
