Welcome to the New Team for 2014!

The CASTAC Blog is pleased to announce our new team for 2014. Joining our Web Producer Jordan Kraemer is our new Associate Web Producer Angela Kristin VandenBroek! Angela brings to the position significant experience in web design and development, and was the recipient of an EduStyle Award. We are excited to have her on board!

I will be continuing on as Editor and will oversee the Blog’s content. At the same time, we are very pleased to announce our new team of Associate Editors (AEs) who will be responsible for bringing exciting new content to the Blog! Below please find their names and contact information listed for your perusal. Please feel free to contact them if you have ideas for blog posts in their areas!

Our new editing team is wonderfully diverse and I believe they will bring a rich and thought-provoking body of content to the Blog this year. Each Associate Editor will be responsible for bringing new and diverse content in topic areas that are vital to the STS space. We were excited to have such strong applications this year. I believe that having a larger editorial body will help create a strong community feeling in the coming years for the Blog and for CASTAC.

I look forward to working with everyone in the exciting year ahead!
