This is the UH Hilo report. News about people, events and programs at the University of Hawai`i at Hilo. UH Hilo honored members of its faculty with excellence in teaching awards during spring commencement held on May 13.

Dr. Adam Pack, professor of psychology, received the UH Board of Regents Award for Excellence in Teaching. Students and colleagues describe him as an outstanding, engaging and enthusiastic teacher, an effective advisor and a wonderful mentor. The Frances Davis Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching was presented to Physics and Astronomy Instructor John Hamilton. Students say his teaching shows that learning is much more than equations and memorizing facts, but about the work they put in and the skills they develop along the way. And receiving the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching was Dr. Alexander Nagurney, instructor in psychology. Nagurney models excellence and creativity both inside and outside the classroom, and possesses an ability to communicate difficult concepts and key principles in the most challenging of subjects.

The National Science Foundation and National Endowment for the Humanities have collectively awarded grants totaling more than $448,000 over a three-year period, to fund a project involving the University of Hawaii at Hilo and UH Mānoa to build a digital online repository of spoken Hawaiian language, or ʻōlelo Hawaii.

The project, entitled “Building a Hawaiian Spoken Language Repository,”
will create Kaniāina, a digital corpus, featuring hundreds of hours of audio and video recordings, fully searchable transcripts in ʻōlelo Hawaii, catalog information in both English and ʻōlelo Hawai`i, and a unique crowd-sourcing feature for soliciting enhanced transcription and content-tagging of the recordings from the public.

The recordings and transcripts will be accessible online at Ulukau: The Hawaiian Electronic Library, beginning with phase 1 of the first two collections: Ka Leo Hawai`i and Kū i ka Mānaleo, later this year.
