Mike Petroski named Apple Distinguished Educator

Mike Petroski

Mike Petroski, director of faculty development and academic assessment, is an ambassador for educational innovation. His efforts in helping faculty and students make the most of iPads and Apple technology at Lynn and other institutions worldwide earned him the prestigious designation of 2015 Apple Distinguished Educator.

He joins a global community of education leaders recognized for doing amazing things with Apple technology in and out of the classroom.

At Lynn, he has played an instrumental role in the faculty’s creative use of technology, increasing participation in faculty training by 92 percent; helped to grow the mobile learning program substantially; fostered a digital publishing culture that has led to a book-free campus store and helped ensure that 100 percent of the university’s degree programs are powered by iPads.

“As Lynn prepared to introduce Apple’s Challenge Based Learning (CBL) for the January 2012 mini-term, I trained the first group of 16 faculty members in CBL teaching methods,” said Petroski.

After the overwhelming success of that pilot project, he expanded training to all faculty members in 274 sessions (to date) covering topics ranging from using the iPad in the classroom to creating e-books.

Every faculty member trained in Apple technology impacts the learning of 80 to 100 students each semester.

Petroski knows firsthand the challenges and satisfaction of enhancing teaching and learning on Lynn’s campus. He has seen the iPad initiative expand from all freshmen in 2013 to all undergraduate and MBA students in 2014 to 100 percent of the campus today.
