March 20, 2009. CCNMTL launches its 2009 University Seminar on New Media Teaching and Learning series this month with a discussion on student learning and faculty development in technology-enhanced environments. Randy Bass, Assistant Provost for Teaching and Learning Initiatives at Georgetown University and executive director of the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship will present on more than six years of research through the Visible Knowledge Project. This project has engaged 70 faculty members on 21 campuses to explore the impact of technology on learning, primarily in the humanities. Collectively, the findings suggest a portrait of student learning that includes dimensions of knowledge and intellectual development that have been traditionally undervalued if not invisible in higher education.

Bass, who is also an associate professor in the Department of English at Georgetown, has been working at the intersection of new media technologies and the scholarship of teaching and learning since the late 1980s. Most recently, he edited, along with collaborator Bret Eynon, a synthesis and digital volume of case studies on learning and new media, published through the online journal, Academic Commons.
