DRL receives University of Pittsburgh "Innovation in Education" Grant with Dr. Alison Stones

The University awarded a competitive grant to Dr. Stones (Professor of History of Art and Architecture) and the DRL to improve art and architecture instruction. The project will create an instructional environment that enables the dynamic interaction between students and visual images, and enhances teaching core art and architecture concepts and features; offer an online resource to allow faculty and students at the University (and elsewhere) to access and manipulate a key collection of visual images documenting Chartres Cathedral, thus improving research and comparative analysis; and demonstrate that collaboration among faculty members and departments is the best way to leverage University resources and expertise. Work on the grant will commence May 1, 2004 and end by April 2005.
