|The Dogwood Project is an interdisciplinary
virtual educational environment of teaching and learning
resources for the faculty, staff, students and community of Northern Virginia Community
College. The project supports the creation of content-rich
academic websites by providing systematic instruction and
formalized mentoring to participants on the development of
effective online learning materials.
Initial support for this project came from a grant funded by the National Endowment for
the Humanities. Dr. Belle Wheelan, President of the College,
provided additional funding for the 1999-2000 academic year. For
2000-2001, the Information Technology Committee of NVCC provided
funding; and for the spring of 2002, the Budget Advisory
Committee awarded incentive funds based on a proposal forwarded
by Dr. Monica Sasscer, Associate Dean for Instructional
Technology. For spring 2003, spring 2004 and again for spring
2005, we have received funding from Dr. Carole Schultz, Assistant
Vice Chancellor for Instructional Technology. We again have some funding for spring 2006.
in cooperation with, and enjoys the support of, the Technical Application Center (TAC) of
the College. The current directors of Dogwood include: Aggie Taormina,
Thompson, Jud Sage and
Evans (kind of retired). For further information about the schedule for this year,
please see proposal and activities.
