small grants program is May 11.

student wages, training, or other resources that support innovative
uses of technology and pedagogy within the curriculum. Additional

and a flyer about the program, is available at
Recent recipients of DMC small grants include Lenny Reisberg, to
cover the cost of training for effective use of a smartboard;
Matthew Levy and Genevieve Williams, to purchase audience response
technology to educate students about plagiarism; and Maria Muzzo, to
explore pedagogical possibilities for the Chalk & Wire digital
portfolio authoring, assessment, and data analysis system.
