Laura Cooper

Meet our new LMS Manager, Laura Brewer!

We are excited to welcome Laura Brewer as our LMS Manager! Laura is no stranger to Learning Management Systems in higher education. During her 10 years at Fuqua School of Business, Duke University, Laura worked closely with faculty and other IT groups to evaluate technology solutions for both residential and distance program courses. She assisted in the transition from a homegrown system to Sakai in 2011 and was excited to help the transition just five years later to Canvas. Laura graduated from East Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in English, and a Masters in Instructional Technology and Design. She served as the Web Content Manager at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business for over a decade, working to consolidate all of the degree programs onto a common platform and simplify the experience for students and faculty. In 2017, Laura accepted a position at The University of Alabama as an instructional designer for their online degree programs. There, she focused on graphic design and enhancing the teaching and learning experience with technology. Laura has worked with multiple learning management systems, and helped with three platform migrations.

Laura was excited to learn about this position at Wake Forest University because she knows the positive impact transitioning to Canvas has on teaching and learning outcomes. Laura is most looking forward to assisting faculty in successfully moving platforms and continuing to explore all that we can do with integrated learning management systems in the future.

Laura will be joining the Deacon team in mid-September and will be located in the ZSR Library. Please stop by and give a warm welcome to Laura!
