Freedman Center Fellows Program 2007
The Kelvin Smith Library is pleased to announce the 2007 Freedman Fellows Program for faculty. The Freedman Fellows Program is sponsored by the Freedman Center, which is a partnership between the College of Arts and Sciences and the Kelvin Smith Library. The Freedman Fellows Program is a collaborative effort between the Kelvin Smith Library (KSL), the College of Arts and Sciences, the University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE), and the Information Technology and Academic Computing (ITAC) group. The Freedman Center contains equipment, collections and personnel to provide a range of services related to multimedia creation as well as equipment for scanning and digitizing paper and other analog materials.
For those interested in the Freedman Fellows Program, an information meeting will be held on Friday, April 13th, 2007, from 12:30-2:00 in the Kelvin Smith Library’s Dampeer Room. Interested applicants must attend this meeting to be considered, and application instructions will be distributed at that time. Additionally, a general overview of the program will be given along with answers to any questions interested faculty may have. Please RSVP to Thomas.Hayes@case.edu, as lunch will be provided (please include any dietary restrictions if applicable).
Six Freedman Fellows (faculty members) will be named in 2007 and each will receive a stipend of $3000 to be spent on curricular re-design projects. The award may be used to supplement salary. The Freedman Fellows program this year will require faculty attendance at a week-long seminar, May 21st-May 25th, covering instructional design and learning principles, planning for the use of technology in curricular re-design, and hands-on access to and use of various technologies in the Freedman Center—-all centered on getting faculty the tools necessary to move forward with course enhancement.
The Freedman Fellows Program is intended to showcase the Freedman Center’s potential. The awards encourage the use of information and instructional technologies and the building of teaching tools that support the development of information and research skills objectives for undergraduate students.
