Radiation technology professors distinguish themselves

Two radiation technology professors from the LLU School of Allied Health Professions recently attended the Radiologic Technology Educators of California (RTEC) 44th annual Teachers Conference, where one was installed as president and the other made a presentation.
The conference took place at the Renaissance Montura Hotel, located in Los Angeles, November 2 and 3, 2006.
Laura Alipoon, EdD, department chair of radiation technology, SAHP, was installed as president for the next two years. This past year, she served as president-elect, and will continue one year beyond her term as immediate past president.
Arthur W. Kroetz, PhD, associate professor of radiation medicine and assistant dean for educational support services, SAHP, presented his study “A myspace.com student meets a ‘my clock still blinks on my VCR’ instructor.”
Dr. Kroetz looked at ways for “more senior” instructors to update their teaching style to help meet the demands and expectations of members of the “myspace.com” generation.
Both Drs. Alipoon and Kroetz were founding members of RTEC. In the early 1990s, Dr. Kroetz served as president of the organization, which has both educators and radiology professionals as its membership base.
