Alice Mccallister

Our very own Alice McCallister has earned her Doctorate in Information Technology (DIT) with a specialization in IT Education! Alice graduated from Capella University on August 24th with a 4.0 GPA which earned Honors, and she made the President’s List every eligible quarter. The title of her dissertation is “The Technical Challenges of Implementing Gamification: A Qualitative Case Study.”

Alice has worked at WSIPC for 6.5 years. As a Business Analyst on the Product Support and Services team she provides product support and training to our coordinator base on our SMS 2.0 and Qmlativ software. Alice is already using her new skills to benefit the Cooperative.

“Right now, I am primarily focused on the training aspect. Which is handy as my doctoral specialization was IT Education!”

We are so proud of Alice’s work ethic and dedication, not only to her studies and education, but also to WSIPC and our Cooperative. It’s an impressive accomplishment to work full time and complete a doctorate simultaneously!

We are lucky and honored to work with such an inspirational person!

Congratulations Dr. McCallister!
