New classroom technology to be demonstrated at MSE Library

Winners of the 2010–2011 Technology Fellows competition will demonstrate their technological innovations from 1 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10, on Q-Level of Homewood’s Milton S. Eisenhower Library. All of the winning faculty-student teams will be available for a hands-on demonstration, with projects covering a wide range of disciplines from the Krieger and Whiting schools.

Now in its 11th year, the Technology Fellows program was created by the Sheridan Libraries’ Center for Educational Resources to assist Johns Hopkins 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 faculty-student teams on projects that encourage active learning, facilitate access to course materials and enhance pedagogy.

Faculty who attend will receive a 2GB mini-flash drive, and students will receive gift certificates for Cafe Q.
