CL17 Buddies

Back to CL17 Program

In our application to attend Cyberlearning 2017, PIs of NSF-funded projects with a cyberlearning theme were given the opportunity to nominate a non-Principal Investigator “buddy” (teacher, informal educator, technologist, designer, graduate student, etc.) who could jointly attend the meeting and enrich our deliberations. Interest in bringing a buddy was very high; a subset of nominees were invited to apply, and selection was very competitive.

The Buddies accepted to attend Cyberlearning 2017 are:

Zachary Alstad Disability Specialist, VR/AR Landmark College
Jennifer Baltes Graduate Student DePaul University
Nigel Bosch Post Doctoral Scholar University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
Andrea Gomoll Graduate Student Indiana University
