Wendy Morgan is program development manager for the University of Oregon Real Solutions and UO Professional Development for Educators programs of UO Academic Extension.
She holds a BA in early childhood education from Oglethorpe University. She taught elementary school in Georgia and Oklahoma. Since moving to Oregon, she has worked as a teacher and tutor in a private elementary school and has volunteered and worked as a substitute at EC Cares.
When she joined Academic Extension as a program developer Morgan set out to create a way to bring the UO’s outstanding research and resources to local teachers in a way that would be engaging, accessible and affordable. Her vision to put robust professional development online while mitigating the typical issue of disconnect that comes with online learning was realized in early 2016 with the launch of the Real Solutions Program.
