Bonnie Fink named CTLT director

Bonnie Fink has been named director of the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology, Interim Provost Mark Gromko has announced.

She was chosen as permanent director following a national search. Fink has been interim director of the center since January 2006, following teaching and administrative assignments in the College of Technology and the English department's Scientific and Technical Communication Program.

“I’m very pleased to announce that Bonnie has accepted the position,” Gromko said. “She brings experience, energy and good ideas that benefit the center and the entire University community.”

Fink has been recognized both on and off campus for her teaching excellence. She was named the BGSU Master Teacher in 1998 by the Student Alumni Association, and in 2004 was presented the Jay R. Gould Award for excellence in teaching in the field by the Society for Technical Communication. Under her leadership, BGSU was last year named a regional center for faculty learning communities by the Ohio Learning Network.
