Professor Lianne Briggs Furthers Accomplishments

In July 2013, Professor Lianne Briggs completed Train the Trainer Certification in Hotel Industry Analytics (CHIA) offered through the SHARE Center by the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (AH&EI) in partnership with Smith Travel Research (STR). This hotel related certification for university students recognizes evidence of a thorough knowledge of the foundational metrics and definitions that are used by the hotel industry. Student recipients will have demonstrated an ability to analyze various types of hotel industry data and confirms a comprehensive understanding of bench marking and performance reports.

In addition, she was chosen to serve on the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute’s (NOCTI) test revision team as a Subject Matter Expert for the Commercial Foods exam during summer 2013. Team members were tasked with the review and revision of over 200 written test questions along with performance assessments and competencies. 

Professor Briggs was also selected to receive the Rich Media Textbook Initiative from the Faculty Center for Teaching & Learning (FCTL) at Ferris. The initiative is a collaborative effort among faculty, FLITE, Media Production and FCTL to develop free-to-students alternatives to the traditional textbooks in an effort to address the rising cost of attending college.

Congratulations Professor Briggs on all of your recent accomplishments!
