About the Grant
A grant of $500,000 from The Fletcher Jones Foundation, proposes to extend our FITness program into an entirely new dimension, enabling CMC to implement a student peer to peer technology training program. Over the course of the next two years, we intend to develop a cadre of Fletcher Jones Technology Consultants. These trained student technology consultants will be assigned to work closely with faculty members who are incorporating FITness goals into their classes. These consultants will learn how technology is used in the classroom, and will support students in the curriculum-wide FITness goals as they pertain to specific course needs. The consultants will provide on-demand personalized instruction to students in our three computer laboratories and in the Fletcher Jones Technology Classroom, a model recently featured on page 30 of A Liberal Arts IT Odyssey article in the Educause Review.
