This event is at a new day and time: 12:00 - 1:15
UCITE is once again honored to present this year's Glennan Fellows program. At this session, the five faculty members who were selected in 2012 for their promise of exceptional careers balancing scholarship and teaching will describe their award projects. As always, this event is an opportunity to hear about the innovative ideas of five of our most promising junior faculty and to honor them.
Join us for their presentations in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of Allen building (at the corner of Euclid and Adelbert) and immediately on the left if you enter through the revolving door of the Euclid Avenue entrance.
Lunch will be provided at the session and will be available from 11:45am so please arrive early to get your lunch so that we can start the talks right on time at noon. To help us estimate the amount to order, please let us know if you plan to attend this session by sending an email to email@example.com.
The Glennan Fellows and their projects are described below:
Philip Feng, assistant professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Title: Sensing in the New Dimensions - Expanding Physical Detection Capabilities by Engineering Nanostructures
This project is to advance cross-disciplinary learning experience for students in the rapid emerging field of nanoscale sensing, by developing experimental demonstration modules and lab sessions, and by integrating topics from research frontiers into teaching. The project is primarily being conducted in the course "Advanced Sensors in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology".
Kenny Fountain, assistant professor of English
Title: Visualizing Evidence in Science & Medicine
Fountain will describe his redesign of an existing English course into a research-based exploration of the visual rhetoric of science. Through archival research, field-trips, guest speakers, and first-hand observations, students in ENGL 341 will investigate how visual displays of evidence play a foundational role in the production, representation, and distribution of scientific and medical knowledge.
Elina Gertsman, assistant professor of Art History
Title: The Global Middle Ages.
The study of European civilization across the long Middle Ages has long focused on western Christendom, and more specifically on a small swath of the continent and the British Isles. Yet, medieval Europe was a place of several thriving cultures, all of which came into regular contact with one another, fostering a rich and fraught conversation among its works of art. I have developed a two-course sequence that would address the global intercultural interactions that took place within and without the constantly changing borders of the medieval world.
Michael Pollino, assistant professor of Civil Engineering
Title: Development of experimental modules for experiential structural engineering education
The project has been developing experiential based learning modules utilizing the experimental testing facilities in the Structural Engineering Laboratory. The modules are intended to engage students in hands-on instruction of structural member behavior and enhance understanding of physical principles taught in the classroom.
Satya Sahoo, assistant professor of Medical Informatics
Title: Collaborating for Better Health: A New Course in Health Information Technology
This new project-based course in health information technology (HIT) brings together students with backgrounds in health care and informatics to collaboratively learn cross-disciplinary skills through real world project implementation. This course is part of an ongoing campus wide effort to create, streamline and consolidate HIT education at CWRU.
