ASU receives digital publishing grant
ASU has been selected as one of 14 universities worldwide to receive the 2006 Hewlett Packard Digital Publishing for Teaching and Learning grant. The university's Department of Technology Management received an award package of HP products and a faculty stipend, together valued at about $73,000.
La Verne Abe Harris was the principal investigator for the proposal. Jon Duff, Thomas Schildgen and Michael Churicuzio were the co-principal investigators.
The grant is designed to promote innovations in teaching and learning through the effective use of digital publishing technologies. ASU was selected for the award after submitting a plan that included digital publishing innovation designed to improve teaching and student learning in the higher education environment.
The 2006 HP Digital Publishing for Teaching and Learning grant awarded about $812,000 to 14 universities in nine countries. From 2004 to 2006, Hewlett Packard has committed more than $36 million in grants to more than 650 schools worldwide to support the company's broader education goal of transforming teaching and learning through the integration of technology.
