2014-2015 Grant Recipients
Nicholas Mitchell, Assistant Professor of Health Sciences
Nicholas was awarded $2,000 to attend the Santa Fe Science Writing Workshop to identify best practices for teaching scientific writing. Professor Mitchell’s goal is to improve how scientific writing is taught in his department. Currently writing projects are one-off exercises designed to meet the needs of individual instructors, an isolated approach to writing instruction that makes it difficult to provide the appropriate scaffolding necessary to support skill development and establish assessment milestones. Professor Mitchell will evaluate all Health Sciences syllabi in his department and will work with his colleagues to design a scientific writing and assessment curriculum for Health Sciences majors.
Kim Spayd, Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Kim was awarded $600 for materials needed to demonstrate the Heat Equation in Mathematics 381, a special topics course that focused on Partial Differential Equations.
