Sara Epperson is the Director of the Digital Education office within the Poorvu Center. Since joining in September 2013, Sara has worked with faculty to bring their online education initiatives to life on various dissemination platforms. From Yale SOM's Global Network for Advanced Management programs, to a summer math course called ONEXYS, to newly formed non-degree programs from professional schools, to an executive online degree program from the School of Public Health, Sara has worked on a variety of large scale projects that are available for both Yale students on campus and beyond. Further, Sara and her team help create and support Coursera MOOC courses available to the public. The team works on every stage of the project, including ideation, outlines, learning objectives, production, editing, promotions, launch and operations. Sara has contributed as both a project manager and consultant on these projects, and is eager to step in for assistance in a variety of ways. She is excited to see more partnerships within the Poorvu Center develop as more material is placed online and accessible to more audiences than ever before, and is thrilled to be a part of these newly formed relationships across the University.
