Back to School!

As August winds down and September starts up, many of us will be heading back to campus (if we ever left at all!) and getting ready for a new semester. We hope you'll take a few minutes out of the rush of meetings, syllabi, and student requests to read this third issue of the 2008 HCTD newsletter.

Inside you'll find a note from our co-chairs with important information about the convention, elections, and membership. You'll also find news about your colleagues' accomplishments, job openings, and a list of links to a wide range of interesting ICT-related articles. This issue also continues our "Spotlight on Scholarship" section, highlighting recent work by HCTD members.

The newsletter is a service to you, the HCTD membership. Please help us by sending comments, suggestions, and your news and information for inclusion. The deadline for submissions for the final issue of 2008 is October 18. Please send your newsletter submissions to John Howard at
