Patterson selected as NEH Summer Scholar
Amy Edwards Patterson, a communication instructor at Moraine Park Technical College, has been selected as a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Scholar from a national applicant pool to attend one of six NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops. NEH is a federal agency that each year supports summer study opportunities so that faculty can work in collaboration with experts in humanities disciplines.
“The NEH Landmarks workshop in Brooklyn will provide me with an excellent opportunity to explore digital pedagogy and place-based education,” said Patterson. “Change and preservation, the major themes for the workshop, relate closely to the composition and communication fields, and I look forward to returning to Moraine Park with new ideas, assignments, and activities to share with my students.”
Patterson will participate in a workshop entitled “Along the Shore: Changing and Preserving the Landmarks of Brooklyn's Industrial Waterfront.” The one-week program will be held at the New York City College of Technology of the City University of New York and directed by Dr. Richard E. Hanley.
Faculty members selected to participate in the program each receive a $1,200 stipend for travel, study, and living expenses.
Patterson resides in Beaver Dam. For more information on Moraine Park, visit morainepark.edu.
