Freedman Fellows Program Awards Announced
The Freedman Center is very happy to announce the winners of the 2008 Freedman Fellows Program. The Samuel B. and Marian K. Freedman Digital Library, Language Learning, and Multimedia Services Center is a partnership between the College of Arts and Sciences and the Kelvin Smith Library. For the College of Arts and Sciences the Freedman Center is evidence of the College's commitment to the evolution of education and the integration of information technologies in its curriculum. For KSL the Freedman Center is the culmination of a ten-year vision for a center that provides faculty, students, and staff with the ability to utilize both analog and hardcopy information sources in digital works and presentations.
The Freedman Fellows Program is further evidence of the commitment of both the College of Arts and Sciences and the Library to revolutionizing education at Case Western Reserve University. This year, the Freedman Fellows Program will distribute six (6) $3,000 awards to successful fulltime faculty applicants who discuss and demonstrate how information technology will be used in teaching or research. Contributers to this program include the University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE), and Instructional Technology and Academic Computing (ITAC).
