"A New Insurgency: The Port Huron Statement in its Time and Ours" (UM, October 31-November 2) brings together world-renowned activists and scholars to mark the 50th anniversary of The Port Huron Statement, the historic manifesto of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) first issued in June 1962.
Lecturers play a major role in an award-winning, cross-disciplinary learning project at The University of Michigan -- MELO.
Q1: What does MELO stand for?
A1: MELO = Michigan Education through Learning Objects. MELO is a cross-disciplinary project group at the UM with a goal to facilitate the integration of curriculum-based sequences of online learning objects (LOs) that complement classroom pedagogy in (large enrollment) gateway courses to enhance student learning, engagement, and persistence in college. The project became active in 2008 with an initial impact in General Chemistry, Intro Psychology, and Intro Statistics. The initial success led to additional funding via NINI (New Initiatives/New Infrastructure) Grants from UM LSA-ITC (Instructional Tech Committee) and involvement of more disciplines.
The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) can help lecturers work on research projects by pairing undergraduates with faculty members who need their help and have something to teach them.
LEO completes its offerings of scholarships for all three campuses with the introduction of the LEO Union Scholarship on the Ann Arbor campus. The LEO Union Scholarship, will award two $1000 awards each year. Applications will be open from November, 2012, through March, 2013, and the first students will receive their awards for the 2013-14 academic year.
