NGTC welcomes new Institutional Researcher; instructors complete Georgia master teacher experience

By Ken Stanford Staff
CLARKESVILLE - North Georgia Technical College has added the position of Institutional Researcher and has tapped Mark Harmon for the role.

Our philosophies and initiatives at the college are turning away from measuring enrollment and are now fully focusing on student success, said NGTC President Dr. Gail Thaxton. We recently joined the Achieving the Dream network and are embarking on a journey to use data to support our efforts to help students to succeed.

We have a large data pool to work with from TCSG which allows for smoothing the statistical noise, said Harmon, who comments that he likes numbers, data, and can find a needle in the haystack. I am impressed with the technology available here at North Georgia Tech, and Im looking forward to looking at the disaggregated data. The amount of data is overwhelming, and I want to put it into a format that can be used by everyone my boss, my colleagues, and the students.

For the last several years, Harmon has worked for Piedmont in the financial aid and human resources departments.


English Instructor Allyson Smith and Accounting Instructor Tim Green represented North Georgia Technical College as 40 Technical College instructors from throughout Georgia gathered for the first Georgia Master Teacher Experience.

The event, held in Thomasville at Southwest Georgia Technical College, is designed to bring together teachers from the Technical College System of Georgia for an intensive week of focus on instructional innovations, motivational techniques, situational problem-solving, contextual learning, and information exchange.
