Rasmussen College in Ft. Myers develops no-cost workshop to educate local secondary design teachers on Adobe design software

FORT MYERS, Fla. (Dec. 21, 2011) – Rasmussen College in Fort Myers recently announced its partnership with The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools' Academy of Teachers to develop and host a 20-week Adobe training session to design and multimedia secondary school instructors in Lee County. Rasmussen College School of Technology and Design Program Coordinator, Jennifer Ayotte, worked in partnership with Golden Apple recipient, Ileane Flores from the Riverdale High School, to create a training program covering the Adobe Creative Suite design software. Flores brought the idea to Rasmussen College after recognizing this local need for continued education with Lee County teachers.

"We are excited about our partnership with Lee County Public School teachers to offer specialized, custom courses in such a niche area so that they can excel even further in their design instruction goals with students,” said Rasmussen College Fort Myers Campus Director, Eric Whitehouse. "this partnership is an exceptional example of how organizations can share their talents and strengths to help benefit the overall community."

The custom training courses will begin January 10, 2012, and feature a weekly or bi-weekly program training on Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver and Flash. Participants will receive a thorough overview of each course with hands-on experience, and also receive preparation for an Adobe certification exam, The custom training sessions will be offered at no cost at Rasmussen College at 9160 Forum Corporate Parkway, Suite 100 Fort Myers, FL 33905.

Rasmussen College in Fort Myers is a premier design school that offers five technology and design degrees through its School of Technology & Design: Digital Design and Animation, Game and Simulation Programming, Computer Science, Cyber Security, and Information Technology Management.

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION FOR LEE COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS: Since 1986 the mission of the Foundation has been to enhance the quality of public education in Lee County by increasing community involvement in, and support for, Lee County Public Schools. Twenty-five years ago a diverse group of local business and community leaders created the Foundation. These concerned individuals realized that the cornerstone of an economically strong community was a quality public education system.

The purpose of every initiative of The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools is to enhance and enrich the quality of public education in Lee County for students and educators through programs, resources, individual and educational partnerships. In-school programs are expanded with additional resources -such as new titles being added to the Jim and Ellie Newton Children’s Literature Center. Students are given unique learning opportunities through programs such as Classroom Grants and the A-Team Challenge. Teachers themselves are recognized and encouraged in their dedicated efforts, as in the Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Program™ and Collegium for the Advancement of Education.
