Advancements such as collaborative web applications and the proliferation of mobile communications for multimedia and web access have created new paths for sharing knowledge and new modes of interaction for students and teachers.

The Harvey Spangler Award for Technology Enhanced Instruction recognizes that the use of technology can greatly enhance the learning experience for students, making it a crucial part of the instructor’s toolbox.

The award was first presented in 2005, and the recipient in 2008 was Prof. James Blanchard.

Previous recipients of the Harvey Spangler Award are recorded at www.engr.wisc.edu/awards.

Civil and Environmental Engineering Assistant Professor Jessica Guo and Engineering Physics Professor Greg Moses are among UW-Madison faculty and staff featured in a video highlighting efforts to creatively apply technology for teaching and learning, with funding and technical support from Engage, a DoIT academic technology program.

Guo developed a simulation game for teaching transportation engineering that provides students a virtual environment and enables them to visualize the results of strategies they implement. Moses, who helped to develop the multimedia online lecture-delivery tool eTEACH, developed a multiplatform version of the software. To see the video, visit www.doit.wisc.edu/engage/.

In addition, Guo received a 2007 simulations and games phase III award from Engage for her Madison Transportation Simulator, and Mechanical Engineering Associate Professor Greg Nellis and Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Physics Professor John Pfotenhauer received the simulations and games award to develop Cool It: An Interactive Learning Game for Cryogenics.
