Harvard’s Vice Provost for Advances in Learning (VPAL), Peter Bol, announced today the formation of the VPAL Research Group. The organization integrates HarvardX and the research fellows’ programs from the Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT) and adds new leadership and positions.
HarvardX, the University-wide initiative that supports online learning and research, is seeking suggestions for a short-term technology developer with specific experience in accessibility remediation.
HarvardX aims to take some of our homegrown exercises and tools in online learning and make them more accessible to those with disabilities (at this time, specifically visual and auditory impairments). This will be a short-term contract
The Association of American Geographers has named Peter Bol as its 2015 Honorary Geographer. Bol is the Vice Provost for Advances in Learning and the Charles H. Carswell Professor of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University. In making its selection, the AAG recognized Bol’s leadership role and engagement with the AAG to build university-wide support for geospatial analysis in teaching and research at Harvard University, and the resulting establishment of the Harvard Center for Geographic Analysis, of which he was its first and extraordinarily successful director.
