UT Dallas Professor to Take Clinical Concepts to Virtual World

I just happened to find this news article posted on my University of Texas at Dallas website about one of my college professors, Dr. Marjorie Zielke, who currently teaches E-Business and Cyberpsychology at our Arts & Technology program. In this article, Prof.

Professor Marjorie Zielke

Prof. Marjorie Zielke, UT Dallas Arts & Technology assistant professor

Zielke talks about her plans with fellow professors Monica Evans, Frank Dufour and Todd Fecther on doing research on a proposed virtual learning environment for those who are in school majoring in Nursing where they can access learning materials and lectures from emerging media such as podcasts and videos as well as collaborate with one another. This is but one example of how online technology can enhance the academic environment and make it more portable and accessible. I posted a piece of the article below, but the rest can be read on the UT Dallas news post. My school has a great Arts & Technology program where they continue to expand on programs and research projects dealing with game design, sound design, virtual environments and emerging media and this research project is but one of many that I hope this program and the ATEC students have an opportunity to get involved in.

Zielke, with Arts and Technology (ATEC) faculty members Monica Evans, Frank Dufour and Todd Fechter, will build a Web site that allows student nurses to be taught concurrently by faculty from Dartmouth University, the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, the University of Texas at Arlington and Stony Brook University School of Nursing in New York.  The new research enhances subject matter review and creates a more portable learning experience.

“Student learning will be enriched by faculty perspectives from across the country,” said Zielke. “Students also will benefit from the social community of other graduate-level nursing students through this virtual learning environment.”

I graduated at the top of my class from the University of North Texas with a BA in Art and 2 minors in Marketing and Radio, Television, and Film. I have been doing graphic design for the past couple of years creating graphics for advertising, signs, brochures , and flyers but I decided to return to school to expand my knowledge into more new media applications such as web design, human /computer interaction, Flash animation and marketing communications. I graduated with an MFA in Arts & Technology at the University of Texas at Dallas. My current studies are focusing on social media and marketing communications which in part encouraged me to begin this blog as well as my love for Hispanic culture and online media practices.
