Trinkle nominated for technology award


Valparaiso University’s chief information officer, Dr. Dennis Trinkle, has been nominated for a TechPoint Mira Award in recognition of his contributions to advancing education and technology in Indiana.

Dr. Trinkle, a nationally-respected expert on teaching, information and technology who joined Valparaiso’s staff last summer, won the 2006 TechPoint Mira Award for Educational Contribution to Technology and is one of eight individuals nominated for this year’s award.

The Mira Awards spotlight Indiana’s most successful technology-driven companies. Nominees include institutions of higher education, K-12 schools and information technology, advanced manufacturing and life science companies. Winners of the 8th annual Mira Awards will be announced May 18.

Dr. Trinkle is founding president of the American Association for History and Computing and a widely published author whose books include “The History Highway: A Guide to Internet Resources,” “Writing, Teaching, and Researching History in the Electronic Age” and “History.Edu: Essays on Teaching with Technology.” He received the 2006 EDUCAUSE Quarterly Contribution of the Year Award for his article “The 361° Model for Transforming Teaching and Learning with Technology.”

Prior to joining Valparaiso’s staff, he served as chief information officer at DePauw University. He is a member of the boards of directors of Tri-State University (where he chairs the board’s Library and Information Technology Committee), Oeplin Corp. and College Mentors for Kids.

“TechPoint is proud to announce the 2007 Mira Awards nominees,” said Jim Jay, president and CEO of TechPoint. “Each nominee has advanced Indiana’s economy, brought global attention to the state and raised the quality of life for all Hoosiers.”
