Difference Maker - Pamela Van Nutt - Computer Technology Department Chair



Jul 30, 2013

WHO:
Pamela Van Nutt at the Martinsville Campus

WHAT:
Computer Applications Technology Department Chair and instructor of computer applications courses

WHEN:
National College faculty member since 2001
More than 10 years of experience as a business application programmer

WHERE:
Holds an Associate of Applied Science degree and a Bachelor of Science degree, both in computer science; currently working towards a Master of Business Administration degree from American National University


WHY:
     My greatest reward as an instructor is when a former student returns to tell me how what they learned in my class has helped them in their career and/or everyday life.
     I try to adjust my assignments to the student’s level. I try to give assignments that challenge but do not overwhelm or discourage my students. I give a variety of hands-on activities to show the course material in different ways. Some students need to see a video, others need hands-on. I try to cater to each student when possible.
     I love to see when a student goes from my helping them, to the joy they feel at accomplishing a task on their own, and then showing a classmate how to accomplish that task.

Computer Department Chairperson Pamela Van Nutt instructs student Jennie Patterson on web-based resources available for coursework assistance.
