Faculty Mentoring and Immersive Learning Environments at Case Western Reserve University

The positive impact Case Western Reserve University professors have on the lives of their students is recognized annually with the J. Bruce Jackson, M.D. Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Mentoring. Yesterday at Commencement, Anne Helmreich, art history associate professor, and Stacy Williams, communications studies assistant professor, were named Jackson Award recipients.

Both Anne and Stacy participated in last week's Collaboration Technology and Campus Engagement Summit.

Stacy kicked off a terrific panel on the Future of Virtual Worlds and Education with this 3 minute video on her research activity.

The panel discussion which featured Mark Turner from Case Western Reserve University's Cognitive Science Department, Cory Ondrejka co-founder of SecondLife and now from USC, and Edward Lee Lamoureux, Bradley University is available below (50 minutes).

Anne Helmreich is the Director of the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities. She hosted a fabulous series on "Cities" this past year. We are also working with Anne and Baker-Nord on a joint venture for next year with the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland's installation on digital art. Anne participated in our expert capstone panel on Web 2.0 and the Future of Learning which is available here.

Congratulations to Stacy and Anne.
