my skills and input have become much in demand. I have the ongoing charge
to generate new uses of Instructional technologies campus wide and now

funded Technology Enhances Learning project to generate new solutions.

and developed a process by which faculty would apply for grants based
on submission of proposed instructional solutions to existing instructional
problems. formative evaluarion, analysis, design and developement were
completed over the course of one semester and implemtation and summative
evaluation in the following semester. Established a project review board
who selected the candidages and awarded the grant. One half the grant
was givent to begin the projets and the rest rewarded upon successful
demionstration of implementation the next semester.
