Engaged Scholarship
An area of research for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is engaged scholarship. Engaged scholarship is defined as “scholarly
efforts to expand multifaceted intellectual endeavor with a commitment to public practices and public consequences”
(http://ccps.unc.edu/resources-support/engagement-engaged-scholarship/). I have been involved in a few different projects that fall within
this area of scholarship. These are described below.       

Engaging educators through the use of technology - Technology Enriched Instruction -  This project, funded by Microsoft Corporation,
(http://www.pil-tei.com/microsoft-tei-workshop-science.html) works to engage university faculty globally in integrating technology into their
classroom practice. I have been involved in developing and implementing the curriculum that has become a part of the TEI workshop. These
workshops and materials have been utilized by a global audience. Using a TPACK framework (Mishra & Koehler, 2006), the materials
created help to illustrate a systematic integration of technology into teaching and learning, addressing critical problems of practice within
science and higher education.

iPadagogy Project Curriculum Development - As part of the iPadagogy Project - 1:1 Integration in Middle School Classrooms previously
discussed,  I am working to  develop a repository of curricular and other practitioner based materials that are housed at LearnNC
(http://learnnc.org). LearnNC is hosted by the School of Education and provides professional development and curricular materials to
educators throughout North Carolina and across the globe. At this early stage, we have developed four iPad enhanced educative curricular
materials (Remillard, 2005) on sound, plate tectonics, ecosystems and food chains, and Angles (Geometry) (See examples at:
