Council invites applicants for Research Scholar position

The UW-Green Bay Research Council announces the following fall-semester Research Scholar funding opportunity:

Research Scholar Program (Applications due Nov. 3) — Support from the Office of the Provost continues to make possible this program, which provides a three-credit course release for the Fall 2015 semester. The Research Scholar will be able to use the time afforded by the release to advance his or her scholarship. The program is open to all full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty members at UW-Green Bay. The Scholar will be expected to work on a specific research project and generate a tangible product during the semester of work (e.g., a grant proposal, draft of a manuscript, book proposal, or preparation of creative works for exhibition/performance/publication). Time may be used to develop a new project (e.g., a grant proposal), to complete an existing project (e.g., the final chapters of a book), or to complete a distinct stage of a larger ongoing project. www.uwgb.edu/rc/research-scholar.asp

Historian Voelker receives Research Scholar honors

David Voelker, associate professor of Humanistic Studies and History, is the newest recipient of the Research Scholar award presented by the Office of the Provost and the institutional Research Council. Voelker will receive a three-credit course release for spring 2014, affording him time to advance his scholarship and further research resulting in “Debating American History: An Argument-Based Textbook Alternative.” His publication will propose a modular textbook alternative for U.S. history instructors who want to teach an argument-based introductory course. In place of a history textbook that “covers” a given period of history with a relatively straightforward narrative, the text will offer a selection of 25 modular units. Each module will include a carefully chosen array of historical arguments, documents and reference materials, through which students will explore major historical debates in depth. The project concept is based upon both historical and pedagogical research that Voelker has carried out over the past several years.

Draney named Research Scholar for fall semester 2013

The Office of the Provost and members of the Research Council are pleased to announce the selection of Associate Prof. Michael Draney of Natural and Applied Sciences as the University’s newest Research Scholar. The honor includes a three-credit course release for fall 2013, which will afford him time to advance his scholarship and further research in support of his project, “Publication of a Rapid Assessment Protocol for non-canopy spiders (Araneae).”  Such a publication and protocol would provide guidance for teams of even inexperienced collectors to adequately sample a habitat for spiders given less than one day of sampling time. It is hoped his protocol could be used widely by terrestrial invertebrate researchers to produce universally comparable biodiversity data.
