Winter Term - 2014

Viola Olsen, Senior Instructor

Ashland, Oregon

Distance Education Instructor of Critical Thinking and Writing

Hello, and welcome!  This page is for my current and future students at Southern Oregon University and Rogue Community College

I am a full-time instructor of Spanish at Southern Oregon University and a part-time instructor of critical thinking and writing in the Distance Education Department at Rogue Community College. I have taught at Rogue Community College since 1997 and at Southern Oregon University since 1998.  My focus at RCC is writing and critical thinking.  My focus at SOU is Spanish.  Since I am fully bilingual, I am equally competent in teaching in both languages.

In my spare time, I enjoy learning new teaching technologies through webinars, listening to music, playing with my grand baby and my kitties, chatting with colleagues and students at the Library Coffee Shop.
