Profs To Demonstrate Award- Winning Projects
Visitors to the Rushmore Mall in Rapid City can see the innovative ways professors use technology at South Dakota's public universities during an event scheduled from 10 a. m. to 4 p. m. Saturday, April 6.
The recipients of Governor Janklow's Faculty Awards for Teaching with Technology from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology and Black Hills State University will demonstrate their grant projects. The state Board of Regents invites the public to attend.
The faculty awards program was the inspiration of Governor Janklow. He first announced the program in 1998. The awards are grants used to support university teaching with computer technology. Faculty members of South Dakota's public universities compete for the grants that provide summer compensation and funds for equipment, software and training. More than 234 grants have been awarded in the past four years.
The most recent year award winners demonstrated their projects at the Capitol Rotunda for state policymakers and capitol visitors in February. Governor Janklow also viewed the grant projects and suggested to Board of Regents Executive Director Robert T. Tad Perry that the people of South Dakota should see the advances in technology being implemented at their own public universities.
In order to allow the public that opportunity, last year’s award winners will display their projects at the Rushmore Mall April 6.
" Governor Janklow's awards have benefited the public universities greatly,” Perry said. “ The grant money has been instrumental in keeping South Dakota's public universities at the forefront of technology. Student learning has been enhanced through the redesigned courses that integrate technology throughout instruction. I really hope the public takes advantage of this opportunity to see the outstanding work that has been accomplished in their own backyard."
