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|
