Enriching Scholarship symposium


Bob Bain, assistant professor, School of Education, demonstrates electronic teaching tools at the seventh annual Enriching Scholarship symposium presented by the Teaching and Technology Collaborative May 10. This year's event in the Michigan Union Ballroom was entitled "Tempt Your Palate: A Menu of Innovations in Teaching with Technology." The tools Bain demonstrated were Virtual Curator and Virtual Expedition. Both were developed for students who assisted in the reconstruction of a house purchased by the Henry Ford Museum for its Greenfield Village. Virtual Curator begins with the director of the Henry Ford Museum posing a problem to students, asking for their help in reviewing primary sources to help the museum reconstruct one of the houses it purchased for Greenfield Village. Virtual Expedition allowed students to explore on a computer screen a number of houses on the grounds of Greenfield Village. (Photo by Paul Jaronski, U-M Photo Services)
