FRCC faculty teaches students in Kenya

Brandon Berman is teaching students this summer in classrooms far from Front Range’s Westminster CampusMeru, Kenya.

Brandon is Multimedia Technology Program director at our campus. He is part of a team that left for Kenya in June to teach and work creatively with students. They will be there for four weeks. Armed with laptops, flip cameras, software and other technology, the team is showing the students how to use design software and create videos.

The team includes other educators, as well as videographers, production assistants, and a nurse practitioner. Lou Montgomery, who works in Facilities at the Westminster Campus, is contributing his skills as a licensed electrician and general contractor.
