Dr. Rachel Penton, Teaching Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, is a 2020 recipient of the UNC/Adobe Course Development Grant.
The program provides funding of $1,250 and a support program for faculty members interested in creating course assignments that help develop students’ digital media-authoring skills. This program is part of a larger University initiative to promote digital literacy, composition, and communication across the curriculum. Adobe’s powerful suite of authoring tools are available at no cost to instructors and students at UNC.
Dr. Penton will apply the grant in her NSCI 276 Cellular Electrophysiology Laboratory course this Fall and students in the course will complete a digital media project assignment while learning to use Adobe software. Congratulations, Dr. Penton!
