Dr. Braziunaite’s student nominator said: “[Having a free textbook] positively impacted my educational experience in the course. The textbooks provided all the information necessary to understand the course context without worrying about any book costs and its availability. The books were available online as a PDF form and being able to download them made it very easy to access.”

Poster Title
Classroom computing at the Ohio Supercomputing Center Thijs Heus Physics The Ohio Supercomputing Center offers classroom accounts that bring a stable, accessible computing platform to the classroom for free. I have used this in Environmental Physics to good success. The advantage is that students can log in through a browser, and can work on it from home, yet there is always enough computer power available, and there is no need to install additional software.

 “The Belle of New Orleans” is a short film, which is a component of the play “By the Way, Meet Vera Stark”, opening on April 20th at the Helen Theater. This film was produced collaboratively between faculty and students from two academic units: School of Film & Media Arts and Department of Theater & Dance. The project brought together four faculty members and more than 20 students in a project-based environment culminating in a professional film production. The poster will outline the ways in which this group of faculty and students interacted and collaborated throughout this process. Poster
