Two faculty named finalists for instructional technology award
Two Communication Studies faculty members has been named as finalists for a university wide award for the use of instructional technology.
Carrie Wilson-Brown and Dr. Andrew Robinson are finalists for the Michael R. Hoadley Instructional Technology Award. The award recognizes an Eastern Illinois University faculty member who has demonstrated the innovative use of new and emerging technologies or an existing technology through innovation and its impact on the teaching and learning process.
The award is named after Michael R. Hoadley, who is the former Assistant Vice-President for Academic Affairs for Technology at E.I.U. This is the second time it's being awarded. Last year, when the award was given for the first time ever, it went to Communication Studies professor David Gracon.
The award will be presented at the annual Center for Academic Technology Support (CATS) award luncheon on January 29th.
