ETS is thrilled to announce that Dr. Stuart Selber, Associate Professor of English and Sciences, Technology, and Sociaety, will join ETS as a Faculty Fellow this Summer. During his time as a Fellow, he will be exploring the topic of that “Changing Nature in Online Instruction Sets” in collaboration with TLT/ETS staff. You can learn more about his project by visiting the emerging description at the ETS wiki. Stuart has been working with ETS for the past year in a redesign of English 202C. We are all thrilled to have him spending time with us this Summer and we know it will lead to some exciting outcomes and discoveries.
My argument is that Web 2.0 environments have begun to recast the instruction set in concrete and meaningful ways. The relevance of the instruction set has been amplified and widened by an online participatory culture that encourages involvement, collaboration, and information exchange. More than simply a good example, the instruction set has become something of a metonym for the complex world of Web 2.0.
Faculty Fellows engage with ETS to integrate technology within emerging educational projects that can be shared and implemented widely throughout Penn State. To be considered for a Fellowship please visit our Faculty Fellowship page.
