How to spend more time in ECIT (and get paid for it)

Some of you may have heard of Emory College Online, an early-summer program that ECIT runs. The way it works is that a professor and a graduate student spend three weeks getting a course on-line, guided by the fabulous Wayne and Shannon. Both faculty and students receive a stipend.

In fact, Shannon and Wayne pointed out to me yesterday that all of you who just went through TLC would now make great people for a faculty member to pair with. But the application has to come from the faculty: you can't apply to this yourself.

So, in the coming weeks and months, you might consider putting a bug in the ear of an adviser or other member of the faculty. I actually did ECO once at the suggestion of a graduate student, and I would be even more likely to consider the suggestion if the graduate student had the kind of skills you all do. Think about it.

Are professors who have previously participated in the program eligible to come back for a second go at it?

Yes, according to Shannon (who should know), this has happened. My guess, though, is that they will be more eligible to do it if it's been a couple of years. But I certainly don't know that much about the selection process, or how many applications they get, etc.
