TAMPA, Fla. (November 20, 2017) – Instructional Technology doctoral student Yaël-Alex Monereau was selected as a Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC) Scholar for the organization’s 2017-2019 cohort.

Monereau has a Master's degree in Instructional Design and Technology from the University of Tampa, and a background in Construction Management and Mechanical Engineering. Her scholarly and research interests include gender studies, visualization, mentoring, student-centered learning and data and surveillance.

HASTAC is a global network of individuals and institutions that come together to share, collaborate, and learn through online forums, blogs, conferences, social media, and other channels of communication. The Scholars program is for graduate students who have an interest in innovative projects and research at the intersection of digital media and learning, 21st-century education, the digital humanities, and technology in the arts, humanities and sciences.

HASTAC Scholars blog about digital activities on their home campus, host forums, organize events, and discuss new ideas, projects, experiments, and technologies that reconceive teaching, learning, research, writing, and structuring knowledge. 

In the Spring, Monereau will host a​​ “​University​ ​Worth​ ​Fighting​ ​For​” ​workshop at USF. This workshop will provide a forum for USF students, faculty and staff to discuss some of the topics currently affecting our educational system. “The University Worth Fighting For” workshop is a result of HASTAC’s partnership with The Futures Initiative to address scholarly interests, such as, intellectual freedom, federally-funded research programs, women’s rights and more.
