Smith Technology Fellows
Smith Technology Fellows perform a variety of duties, which may include serving as teaching assistants with technology-intensive classes or as research assistants, executing targeted technology development projects for use in instruction or research, assisting faculty and others with targeted projects involving software such as Oracle or .NET. Some project assignments will require experience using specific software platforms and will provide technical support for courses, assist faculty with tutorials and demonstrations, and assist student teams in projects. Students working on projects which require specific technology skills will be eligible to attend vendor hands-on training sessions. Projects will generally be defined as one semester in duration but could extend over the academic year. Compensation for work on projects is $10/hour, with projects ranging from 200-400 hours, which can be spread over a semester or a year. Projects may be renewable for additional semesters.

1. Assisting with Web site design and updating
2. Conducting research on eLearning and communications technologies
3. Conducting research on online instruction, especially on the development of asynchronous teaching materials
4. Learning to use the synchronous platform and teaching it to faculty members.
5. Tutoring faculty on the technology used in the creation of asynchronous materials.
6. Developing games and exercises for the program.
7. Analyzing data to evaluate the effectiveness of the program.
