As Associate Vice Provost for Digital Education, Audra will establish relationships with online education providers and collaborate with the Center for Teaching and Learning to develop in-house capacity. Audra will also lead a collaborative marketing and student support strategy for online learning that extends the University’s brand to the online education space and ensures online students have the necessary resources.
Audra originally joined the Office of the Provost in January 2023 in an interim capacity and quickly began developing a strategy to advance online education at Pitt. She established cross-university working groups to address the needs of online students, led business strategies with third-party vendors, and implemented new processes to grow Pitt’s non-credit learning platform.
Prior to her arrival at Pitt, Audra held senior positions with both FutureLearn and edX, and has done work in sales, partnerships, and licensing for Bibliomotion, getAbstract, and Harvard Business Publishing.
