Khoo Selected for Research and Creative Work Award


May 2004

Michael Khoo

Graduate student Michael Khoo has been selected to receive one of three Graduate Student Research and Creative Work Awards given for 2003-2004. The award, which is determined by faculty review, acknowledges outstanding research or creative work by CU-Boulder graduate students across all disciplines.

Mick's research used ethnographic methods to study the design and development processes of educational digital libraries, including the Digital Library for Earth System Education and the Digital Water Education Library. His results have informed library policies and systems, human-computer interaction theory, and communications theory.

Each of the three award winners received a cash prize of $660 and their research contributions are being formally acknowledged at an awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 5, 2004 4:00pm-6:00pm in UMC 235.

Mick, a student in the Department of Communication, works as a graduate research assistant for Tamara Sumner in the Boulder Learning Technologies Lab. The lab investigates how digital library systems can transform science education from the dual perspectives of library as cognitive tools and library as knowledge production networks. Sumner also serves as Mick's PhD advisor along with Michele Jackson of the Department of Communication.
