ITS and the libraries are pleased to announce the 2013 SEED projects. As they did in our inaugural year of 2012, Swarthmore faculty and staff submitted an exciting and innovate pool of proposals. Here are this year’s recipients of SEED support:
Collaborative web repository for video clip collections
Erik Cheever, Ben Berger, and Sunka Simon
Creating accessible course materials for students with disabilities and learning differences
Human rights and atrocities library guide
Online chemistry readiness exam for first year students
Kathleen Howard with General Chemistry Instructional Staff and Josh Newby
Reading Involves Shared Experience (RISE): eBooks and literacy for the Deaf child
Donna Jo Napoli
Web based access, entry, and analysis of long-term ecological datasets from the Crum Woods
Zadachi (tasks): a supplemental video course for elementary Russian
Congratulations to our proposers. Our staff and student interns are excited to get another summer of productive collaboration underway.
The SEED process facilitates the creation of new digital objects or resources that enhance teaching or facilitate undergraduate research. SEED projects will receive dedicated support from teams of software developers, librarians, academic technologists, and student interns for an eight-week period of project development in June and July 2013.
SEED projects have:
• a clear focus on enhancing undergraduate learning.
• a scope that can be completed within eight weeks.
• a plan to be put into use in the 2013-14 academic year.
