ISU Trainer receives Master’s of Art degree

Bethany Burdt (pictured), ISU Technical Writer and Trainer, received her Master’s degree in Rhetoric, Composition, and Professional Communication from Iowa State University in May 2017. Burdt’s creative component was titled, “The birth of ApplyAcademia,” which attempts to bridge the gap between instructional designers and the field of academia.

“Obtaining my Master’s, and this program specifically, enabled me to explore and further refine my passion for online learning,” explained Burdt. Burdt utilized ISU’s Tuition Reimbursement Program to complete her degree.
