Dr. Lamm serves as visiting faculty at Notre Dame
Dr. Rob Lamm, director, English Education, spent this summer as a visiting faculty member at Notre Dame University, South Bend, In., teaching two graduate-level English courses.  Each summer, Notre Dame hosts a non-traditional teacher licensure program, the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE). A "boot camp for teachers," the program allows individuals to earn an MSE after two intensive summers of coursework and supplementary correspondence work while teaching through the fall and spring. As part of the 200-teacher program, Lamm worked with 20 English teachers to develop teaching techniques and plan for the upcoming school year. Lamm was invited to join the program through a nationwide search.

Hill's article, "E-mail Inverted Interest Index Theory: A Case Study of Electronic Communication in a Strategic Planning Initiative at a Four-Year Public University," appeared in this month's issue of the journal, which is published by the University of Toronto Press.
