Lincoln Tech CEO Addresses Education Technology Conference
Lincoln Educational Services Corporation (NASDAQ: LINC) announced that President and CEO Scott Shaw was a featured speaker at Landmark Ventures’ Social Innovation Summit that was held on Wednesday, March 17th at 1pm EDT. The webinar, “EdTech: One Pandemic Year Later,” examined transformations in education technology in response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
“Over the last 12 months, we’ve seen tremendous shifts in how our sector delivers critical hands-on training,” Shaw says. “At Lincoln Tech, we accelerated our existing Blended Learning capabilities to quickly and effectively shift all of our classes to a hybrid model with little or no interruption to the student experience. The student response was overwhelmingly positive, which speaks to the adaptability of our outstanding instructors. I look forward to sharing our organization’s experience with the panel and attendees.”
Shaw adds that the goal of improving student outcomes must remain the focus throughout the industry, regardless of outside conditions or educational delivery methods. At Lincoln Tech, graduates are entering career fields such as healthcare support, automotive and transportation fields, skilled trades such as HVAC, Welding, and Computerized Manufacturing, and Information Technology – all of which are essential now and will help move the country forward after the pandemic.
The Social Innovation Summit is a platform designed to elevate groundbreaking ideas and innovative leaders who are making a difference and changing the world for the better. Also Miriam Brady, Senior Program Manager for Digital Inclusion at Microsoft; George Moore, Chief Technology Officer at Cengage; and Mel Ochoa, Chief Operating Officer for Landmark Ventures all spoke at the event.
“It’s an honor to be asked to join these leaders at such an important event for our industry and for the education community at large,” Shaw says.
