The Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL) is pleased to announce that Mark Williams has been awarded a DCAL Fellowship for Teaching and Technology for the 2005-2006 academic year. Professor Williams is Associate Professor and Chair of Film and Television Studies. Professor Williams will spend his fellowship term (Winter 2006) designing and compiling a repository of digital media to support two courses he regularly teaches - Film Studies 50: Cyber-Theory and Film Studies 46: The Industrial Roots of the Information Superhighway. One facet of Williams's research focuses on the reporting and representations of disasters and catastrophes in various media. A digital repository of video, audio, still photo and text documents will support both his research and teaching, effectively enabling him to share his research topics with the students in Film Studies 46 and 50.
During his tenure as DCAL Fellow, Williams will enjoy technical support from Curricular Computing and the Library as well as regular consultations with the DCAL staff. For more information about the fellowships and application procedures, please see the DCAL Fellowship page.
