USES OF INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY AWARD Dr. Sunil
Labroo, Assistant Professor of Physics and
Astronomy is the winner of the Provosts first
annual award for Innovative Uses of Instructional
Technology. Strategic use of Java applets and
the World Wide Web have significantly enhanced
the learning of difficult physical concepts
through dynamic and real-time interaction, thus
making physics more accessible to the average
non-science student.
