Illinois College faculty members participated in a two-week, on-campus technology seminar funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation this month.
Part of the training included a two day course on learning the power of social media and how faculty can share their stories with the world on CNN iReport.
In 2009, Illinois College received a $100,000 grant from the Mellon Foundation for a multi-year program to support faculty members as they incorporate information literacy into student assignments and classroom learning.
This is the final year for the summer training program. A total of 36 faculty members participated in the three-year program.
