Walker, Luann
Journal of Developmental Education, v39 n2 p20-22 Win 2016
This article presents an interview with Rick A. Sheets, who has been working in learning assistance, faculty training, and technology support for over 30 years. He collaborated with Frank Christ as the co-founder and webmaster of the Learning Support Centers in Higher Education (LSCHE) website, a resource established in 1996 for learning center directors, administrators, and faculty. In addition to being a past president of the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), Sheets served as coordinator of the International Tutor Training Program Certification (ITTPC) from late 2008 until early 2015. Holding a B. A. and an M. A. of education from Arizona State University, Sheets continued his education through the National Center of Developmental Education's Kellogg Institute before returning to Arizona State to earn a Doctorate of Education. In 2010, he retired as director of the Learning Support Center at Paradise Valley Community College. Over his extensive career, Sheets has earned awards for training and employee innovations, CRLA recognition awards, and the National College Learning Center Association's (NCLCA) Innovation in Technology Award for his work on LSCHE. Lastly, in February 2015, he was inducted as a Council of Learning Assistance and Developmental Education Associations (CLADEA) Fellow, the field's highest honor.
