Putting the Internet into perspective.
The Berglund Center for Internet Studies at Pacific University requests proposals for up to three Berglund Fellowships. The Fellowships will be in the amount of $5,000.00 each, and the Fellowship awarded jointly to the Fellow and his or her School or Department.
By agreement with Deans and Program Directors we have linked the Berglund Fellowships to faculty and staff development at Pacific University. For this round of applications, we seek proposals that meet a common standard:
The Fellowship project must be a joint effort between the Berglund Center, a member of the faculty or staff, and his or her Department, Program, or School. The purpose of this stipulation is that all proposed projects should advance the interest of the applicant's program in supporting field-appropriate scholarly research, or in developing programmatic use of or assessment of the Internet or electronic resources in meeting its particular goals.
PAST FACULTY FELLOWSHIPS
Sandra Pelham Foster, Occupational Therapy: Investigation of the Use of Mobile Technology in healthcare clinical education. This investigation would support the development of innovative methods for facilitating the reflective education process form students enrolled in courses while in fieldwork. It is applicable to the development of the new OTD curriculum to be offered in August 2012.
Nancy Neudauer, Mathematics: Directed Reading is a strategy to help students learn to read mathematics. Reading mathematics independently is difficult, and many students are never expected to read mathematics on their own before college. In this project I extend my earlier research to more current internet and online resources, which make implementation of Directed Reading more feasible. I am interested in how these internet resources can affect the way that we and our students communicate, teach, and learn mathematics.
Michael Geraci, Media Arts: Dotted Landscape is an interactive, online project that seeks to analyze our relationship to where we live in light of the detritus we leave behind. Over 100 unique pieces of roadside trash will be documented and geo-located on a Web-based map that can be explored by the user. A set of digital stories will be created for the litter that seeks to understand its presence in our lives. Specifically, this project will ask the questions: What is the story of our trash? What does our trash say about us? And, what do we want to say about our trash?
