McMurry University to award degrees to 74 students at 2012 Fall Commencement


ABILENE, Texas – Dr. Alicia Wyatt, Dean of the School of Natural and Computational Sciences (SNCS) and a Professor of Computer Science at McMurry University, will be the featured speaker at McMurry’s Fall 2012 Commencement. Seventy-four students are set to receive their degrees at the ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday at Radford Auditorium.

Dr. Wyatt attended Texas Tech University and earned a Doctor of Education degree in Instructional Technology in August 1988. She joined the McMurry faculty as an adjunct in 1997, and became a full-time member of the faculty in 1999.

Interested in all aspects of technology applications, Dr. Wyatt is currently exploring the realm of social media, the construction of personal learning environments, ways to connect the physical and the virtual, and a wide variety of tools that encourage and augment both learning and creativity. She believes that the development of a widespread, always-on, participatory web of mobile content and applications has profound implications for learning and social interaction in our lives. Dr. Wyatt teaches classes in instructional technology, social media, website development, and multimedia. You can find her on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Diigo. She authors a blog to keep friends of SNCS abreast of the latest student and faculty activity.

The McMurry community has honored Dr. Wyatt with three of its highest awards: the Outstanding Faculty Award in 2003; the Gordon R. and Lola J. Bennett Award for outstanding teaching, service, and leadership in 2005; and the Exemplary Service Award in 2009.
