DCAL Fellowships enable Dartmouth professors to develop and apply specific technological solutions to a particular teaching problem or challenge. With a reduced course load and the support of professionals in curricular computing, media production and the library, Ruoff will learn to adopt sophisticated graphics software for his courses in documentary and experimental videomaking, Film Studies 30 and 36.

Along with updating his software and digital editing skills, Ruoff plans to redesign the Web site he uses for his courses so that students can use it to share their videos online, creating vlogs (video blogs).  Students will also be able to prepare for class critiques by viewing each other's work on the course Web site, allowing Ruoff and his students to use their classroom time more effectively. The site will also showcase an archive of student videos for use on and off campus.

DCAL offers fellowships annually to assistant, associate and full professors in the Arts and Sciences. For more information about the fellowships and application procedures, visit www.dartmouth.edu/~dcal/fellowships.
