Lakeshore Technical College’s Adjunct Paralegal Instructor Terry Dimmick recently won the American Association for Paralegal Education (AAFPE) Cyber Idol Distance Teaching Competition.  Dimmick received a $500 award for his online course presentation.

All contestants had to include a short summary about the course, course objectives, a course syllabus and the lecture from one week of the class and the grading template for discussion.  Dimmick submitted course content from his Business Organizations online class including learning activities, assessments, videos and the course syllabus. 

“I submitted course content from my Business Organizations online class because students are given a real life business scenario and have to create legal documents based on this scenario,” said Dimmick.  “The coursework challenges the students to think because as the company scenario changes, so must the paperwork they complete.”

Dimmick was unable to attend the conference so Richard Opie, LTC Paralegal Program Coordinator attended in his absence and presented his material.

 “LTC excels at providing students with hands-on learning experiences,” said Opie. “Terry’s course creates real world assignments for the students that are not mundane but that the students can relate to which I think made his presentation and class unique.”

Dimmick has worked at LTC as an adjunct instructor for over 10 years. He also works as a manager for Bay Title and Abstract in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
