ECU Graduate Student Receives Outstanding Nova Award

hubbellFellow Pirate, Ken Hubbell, received the Nova Southeastern Award for Outstanding Practice by a Graduate Student in Instructional Design. All materials submitted to the competition must have been designed no earlier than 2012, while the nominee was enrolled as a graduate student. Hubbell states: “I applied my own customized version of ADDIE that incorporates spiral development as a means of managing the learning solution..[then] I selected a free, real-time animation tool with automated lip-synchronization to shorten the animated video production cycle-time.” We would like to congratulate Hubbell on this exemplary, yet cost-effective idea. What a great asset he is to our University and the MSITE Department! Hubbell’s work is open to view at the following link: http://bit.ly/operating_leverage.

MSITE Student-Faculty Meet & Greet Success!

studentreception4studentreception2Last Thursday (8/29/2013), MSITE graduate and undergraduate students took advantage of the opportunity to meet & greet with one another, and make small-talk with their professors outside of the classroom!  Faculty and staff provided heavy hors d’oeuvres for everyone to snack on while they were engaging in lively conversations. Overall, 59 students and 15 faculty/staff members were in attendance. Math Graduate Assistant Daphney “Brooke” Hill enjoyed herself immensely. She said: “It was refreshing to talk with some of the freshman students intending to study Math Education. I was where they were- not too long ago!” Director of Students, Dr. Ron Preston was all smiles and agreed the afternoon was a Pirate success!
