Kay Etheridge, Professor of Biology
Prof. Etheridge received this grant to cover expenses associated with creating an audio guide for a gallery exhibition as part of the First-Year Seminar course, Exploration of the Marvelous: Art and Science in the Renaissance.
Josef Brandauer and Matt Orange received $560 to purchase Wacom Intuos Manga Pens and Wacom Wireless Accessory Kits for Bamboo and Intuos Tablets. This technology has allowed Professors Brandauer and Orange to actively annotate PowerPoint slides in HS 209-210 Human Anatomy and Physiology I and II during class to respond to student questions. They found that this direct annotation increased their mobility in the classroom, allowed them to post notes on Moodle 9 after class, gave Peer Learning Associates an exact record of what transpired in class, and also provided a record
Florence Ramond Jurney and Jack Murphy (French) received $1,166 to purchase two iPads to be used in the advanced grammar and conversation course.

every written gesture to be recorded and saved as a mini-film.
Cassie Hays, Assistant Professor, Sociology
Cassie received funding for her course, Power, Politics, and New Media which challenges students to interrogate the role and power of new media in the formation of national identities, global assemblages, international information flows, legal structures, and social change. The students are asked to confront traditional research methods by conducting what might be called a Twitter ethnography.
Paul Austerlitz (Conservatory of Music/Africana Studies) used his grant to hire a student to transfer 15 hours of videotaped material gleaned from research in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Ghana, Benin, and Nigeria to DVD/hard drives and to edit them into individual units. The research material included everything from interviews with musicians to “talking drum” demonstrations and will be useful in a variety of courses: FYS 143: The Transformative Power of Music, AFS/MUS 318:Africana Music—Juju to Hip-hop, AFS/MUS 282: Music of the Caribbean, AFS/MUS 247: The History of African American Music and MUS 212: Cross-Cultural Elements of Music.
