Evangeline "Litsa" Varonis

Member of the Scientific Committee, workshop facilitator, presenter, moderator


Litsa Varonis first presented at ICICTE in 2010 and regrets that she did not join the family earlier. That year, her husband Orestes begged her to write an abstract for the following year so they could attend again together, and for them it has become an annual event.

Litsa works as an instructional designer at The University of Akron and is involved in many outreach activities involving instructional technology. She was the first person in the English Department to teach in a Distance Learning classroom and also the first to use a learning management system. Excited about the ways in which learning technologies could enhance education, she moved to a position in IT but continues to teach regularly.

Certified as a Quality Matters Master Reviewer and Facilitator, in 2013-4 she served on the committee charged with updating the Quality Matters rubric used internationally to certify quality online course design. She introduced Quality Matters to ICICTE in 2013 when she presented a paper on it and volunteered her services as a facilitator of the Applying the Quality Matters Rubric workshop.

Litsa has a BA (English, Psychology, and Honors) from Arcadia University and an MA (Linguistics) from the University of Pennsylvania. She has published widely in the areas of instructional technology, English as a Second Language, English composition, and linguistics.
