- BLAISE Consortium & Teagle Grant (May 2014)
Call for IWU Faculty Representatives
In 2013, six liberal arts institutions - Beloit, Lawrence, Augustana, Illinois Wesleyan,
St. Norbert’s and Elmhurst, or BLAISE - established a consortium named BLAISE. The
goal of BLAISE is to assist each other in shaping curriculum and pedagogies that reflect
21st-Century opportunities and needs, while underscoring our traditional liberal arts
identities and values. The Teagle Foundation has awarded a $280,000 grant to four
colleges in the consortium, including IWU, for creation of online learning modules
to enhance student learning. For information on the grant, click here.
For more information on this initiative please contact our Technology Fellow, Professor Diego Mendez-Carbajo.
- Google Glass Initiative (May 2014).
The university recently received a donation of Google Glass through the Explorer program.
CETAL has invited the university community to submit proposals for creative uses of
Glass in teaching and learning, research, entrepreneurial initiatives and more. For
more information on this initiative and awarded projects please contact Karen Schmidt.
