Announcing the 2011 Freedman Fellows Program
The Samuel B. and Marian K. Freedman Digital Library, Language Learning, and Multimedia Services Center announces the 2011 Freedman Fellows Program that encourages & assists faculty with the development of new avenues in curricula & teaching. The program now seeks project proposals for experimenting with new digital technologies, innovation, information competencies and varied resources. Such projects can engage the scholarly objectives of both faculty and students, and has helped shape research, instruction, and learning.
The 2011 program has evolved into a new focus of helping faculty who are already working on a project and are at a critical point where expert assistance throughout the year from the staff of the Freedman Center & KSL will help to complete the project. Up to six $3,000 awards may be given in 2011.
This year's program will identify & support scholarly projects that meet all of the following conditions, where the project is:
• currently underway
• involves some corpus of data that is of scholarly or instructional interest
• involves the use of digital tools and processes
• has clearly articulated project outcomes.
More program details are available in the Overview of the program; there is also a helpful Freedman Fellows FAQ for content, budget, and copyright issues.
Online project proposals are due by midnight Monday, April 18, 2011. Awards will be announced by Friday, April 22nd, and the first 2011 Freedman Fellows meeting is Friday, May 6, 2011.
The Freedman Center is a partnership between the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) and the Kelvin Smith Library (KSL). Since its inception in 2005, the Freedman Fellows Program has given awards to 30 faculty members.
