BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Dr. Rodney Dunning, assistant professor of physics at Birmingham-Southern College, and Dr. John Tatter, BSC professor of English, have both received technology fellowships from the Associated Colleges of the South.
The fellowships provide awards of $2,500 for projects that develop teaching materials or other curricular enhancements in which technology plays a key role and which have potential application for other ACS institutions.
Dunning will use the funds to create a library of three-dimensional animations for use in introductory astronomy courses. Tatter will digitalize almost 500 slides of English landscape gardens and store them in a searchable, annotated, web-based database for use in 18th-century English literature courses and art history courses.
Associated Colleges of the South, headquartered in Atlanta, is a consortium of 16 liberal arts colleges and universities in 12 Southern states that work cooperatively to strengthen academic programs of the member institutions and to promote to others the nature of a liberal arts education and the vital role it plays in society
