Fellowship Project & Instructional Interests

Lisa Modenos is a high school dropout turned professor, and the first  person in her family to go to college. She is a faculty advisor in the  University Without Walls program, and her passion has become helping the UWW nontraditional students navigate the often intimidating and sometimes confusing landscape of academia (intellectual and bureaucratic). She is excited to incorporate various innovations into her online courses to help her distance learners be more engaged, interested, and inspired and feel less isolated via the online medium.
