Lois Oestreich

Lois Oestreich

Associate Professor

Credentials:

Lois Oestreich is an associate professor of education at Salt Lake Community College and teachers a variety of education courses. Beginning her post-secondary teaching career as an adjunct instructor and then moving into a fulltime faculty position, Lois has been at SLCC for 16 years.

Lois is one of those fortunate individuals who has the "teacher gene:" she was born to teach. Growing up in a small town in the Pacific Northwest, Lois’ interests in rural education developed at an early age. In rural (small town) areas, schools were woven into the community's fabric. Lois decided that teaching was a perfect professional fit for and wanted to become part of that teaching fabric. Following graduation, Lois launched into a life as a professional educator primarily focusing on elementary school rural education (one of her research interests) and now on andragogy (teaching adults). After many years in the classroom, Lois also served as a school and program administrator prior to coming to SLCC.

Lois has an extensive background in teaching and learning as a student of pedagogy. With a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology with an emphasis in learning theory from Southern Oregon University and an elementary school teaching license, Lois promoted inclusive classrooms allowing her to include exceptional learners in her classes. Lois also has an MEd in Curriculum Development from Westminster College with a research focus on the many diverse facets in K-6 curriculum. This is where her strong emphasis in multicultural teaching developed. Lois also holds an EdS in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies and was also awarded a principal’s license from the University of Northern Colorado.

Currently, Lois’ teaching focus is on virtual classrooms and the impact of online learning for both students and faculty. She participates in SLCC and national online course reviews and partners with faculty and eLearning designers to ensure quality virtual courses.
