Heather Pinkett and Alessandro F. Rotta Loria have been named the 2022 recipients of The Alumnae of Northwestern University’s Award for Curriculum Innovation.

The award seeks to support faculty members offering undergraduates innovations that enhance their curriculum through new courses, methods of instruction and new components to existing classes.

The recognition comes with $12,500 in award funding to be split between innovation development ($7,000), stipend ($5,000) and the faculty member’s home department ($500). 

Pinkett will use the award to work with students to develop a national resource to increase curriculum inclusivity and address representation in STEM, and Rotta Loria will create massive real-world datasets that allow students to realize virtual geothermal energy projects with potential to impact the city.

For anyone registering for the Winter 2022 courses, there is an added step to the process of joining the online Zoom courses. 

As before, once you have registered at the Norris Box Office, you will receive an email confirming your registration. 

The newly added step is that you will also receive an email from Norris Virtual asking you to register for the Zoom.  We know you may be familiar with this platform, however this quarter we will be requiring you to additionally register through Zoom.  It will direct you to click a link to register at your earliest convenience.  This registration step in Zoom will then allow Norris Virtual to send you the email with the link to join the Alumnae online course for which you have registered.  From now on, there is only one link for all nine weeks.  You will receive a reminder email each week one hour before each class. 

You will continue to receive emails with links to the recordings within 24 hours of each session.  Each recording will remain active until midnight preceding the next session.

Your link is specific to your email and  may not be shared with others.
