12 L&S instructors receive Engage DMA Awards

August 23, 2010 by Doug Worsham

12 L&S instructors recently received DoIT Engage Awards to explore Digital Media Assignments (DMA) in their classes. These instructors will work closely with consulting staff and campus librarians to plan innovative multimedia assignments, from short documentaries and digital stories, to scientific tutorials and digital research proposals.

Our consulting team at L&S LSS has been working closely with colleagues at DoIT Academic Technology throughout the planning phase of the DMA awards, and we'll continue this partnership as the projects get started. We'll also keep you up to date on L&S involvement in the award program and share emerging best practices in digital media for teaching and learning with a series of news stories and how-to guides. Just click on the tag "Digital Media Assignments" anywhere on our site for a list of the latest resources.
