Congratulations to University of Memphis graduate student Matthew Bolton on being selected for the Designers for Learning Service Learning Project. His faculty sponsor is Dr. Trey Martindale.
New Project Kick-Off: We are pleased to announce the kick-off of our next service-learning project facilitated by Designers for Learning! Our pro bono service-learning projects are completed by volunteer college students who are enrolled in instructional design and performance improvement programs. To follow along with the project, please bookmark our project website at http://studio.designersforlearning.org/.
Selected Service-Learners: Students were selected as volunteers during a competitive application and review process conducted by the project facilitators, Jennifer Maddrell and Jill Stefaniak. While we had hoped to have sufficient interest to secure 12 student volunteers for this cohort, the recent Call for Volunteers held over the summer resulted in over 20 applicants. Therefore, we were forced to make tough selection decisions based on the experience level of the applicants. Including three students who are returning from our spring cohort, the following is the full roster of volunteer service-learners selected for this project, along with their school affiliations and their faculty sponsors.
