Welcome to the second issue of Faculty Notes for the 2010-2011 academic year. It’s been a busy and productive semester, which seems to have gone by very quickly. It’s hard to believe the end of the calendar year is near.

This issue highlights teaching and research as the two defining dimensions of faculty life here at Carroll. The cover story about the Technology Fellowship Program provides examples of how professors are using and adapting to new technology and its effects on students. The opportunity to engage in original research is also essential to an intellectually vibrant campus. In light of that, we recognize our colleagues who have been awarded Summer Research and Grauel Fellowships to support their scholarships.

The ways in which student learning is enhanced by both these roles – teaching and research – will be on display this coming March at the 10th Celebration of Scholarship. Please see the back cover of this issue for more detail.

Faculty Notes is published twice each semester by the Office of the Academic Vice President. We are pleased to share this showcase of faculty engagement and initiative. Look for the next edition in March.

Items of interest regarding faculty activity, including new publications, conference presentations, collaborations with students, community and professional service activities, teaching innovations, etc., will be published. Please include relevant details such as date and place of presentation.

Questions and comments should be directed to Lauren Bowen, Associate Academic Vice President for Academic Programs and Faculty Diversity, at bowen@jcu.edu.
