“Teacher”- Move from primary role as a dispenser of information to orchestrator of learning and helping students turn information into knowledge, and knowledge into wisdom. “Learn how to learn”

The 21st century requires

knowledge generation, not

just information delivery, and

schools need to create a

“culture of inquiry”.


VCOM Carolinas has a great

mix of seasoned & junior faculty.

I have no particular talent…I am merely inquisitive

Special considerations for site assignments

Special Considerations for Site Assignments

  • Special child care considerations

  • Children in school

  • Ill spouse or child requiring specialized care

  • Personal Illness/care that can only be obtained in a specific region

  • Married couples requesting to be together



  • Most sites do not provide housing for core students
