New classroom technology to be showcased at MSEL

Winners of the 2010 Technology Fellows competition will demonstrate their technological innovations from 1 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4, on Q-Level of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library at Homewood. All 11 of the winning faculty-student teams will be on hand to demonstrate how they used their grants to enhance undergraduate instruction.

Projects cover a wide range of disciplines and topics from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, Whiting School of Engineering and Peabody Institute.

All faculty who attend will receive a free 2GB mini-flash drive, and students will receive gift certificates for Café Q.

Now in its 10th year, the Technology Fellows program was created by the Sheridan Libraries’ Center for Educational Resources to assist faculty in the development of digital course resources. Funded by the Office of the President and the Smart Family Foundation, the program awards $5,000 grants to faculty/student teams for projects that integrate technology into instructional programs. CER technology experts and librarians collaborate with the teams on projects that encourage active learning, facilitate access to course materials and enhance pedagogy.
