Howard Davis Ask Howard Davis, BAC's rst Vice President of Online Education, about the importance of technology as a tool for improving education, and he's likely to tell you about his adventures in Northern British Columbia, Canada, where he built a log cabin by hand. "I lived miles north of the nearest town just o a logging road, and it was there that I learned how to use an ax, a froe, and a chain saw. Understanding tools and using them smartly was critical for survival in the woods, and is critical for intellectual sur vival today," he said. Or he might describe the time, as college writing director, that he turned a traditional writing classroom into a computer lab. Davis noted, "It was an epiphany when I realized that because we integrated technology into the learning process, students became better and more dedicated writers." Howard was the Academic Dean/CIO of Southern New Hampshire University's online division, where he managed over online degree and certi cate programs. He also launched online learning programs at University of Vermont and other colleges. And for over years he has taught face- to-face and online college classes.
