News / Brusilovsky receives NSF award


Peter Brusilovsky, Associate Professor at the iSchool, recently was awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation for his work on ENSEMBLE, which will create a computing pathway to the existing set of NSF STEM Digital Libraries (NSDL). This system will ensure that the NSDL pathways provide a more complete coverage of STEM areas. The computing pathway supports the full range of computing education communities, provides a base for the development of programs blending computing with other STEM areas, and produces digital library innovations that are propagated to other NSDL pathways. Since computing communities continue to rapidly evolve, the computing pathway greatly aids computing educators in those areas. Dr. Brusilovsky will serve as Principal Investigator for this three-year project. ENSEMBLE is a collaborative project with researchers from Villanova University, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Drexel University, Portland State University, and Texas A&M University.
