Benjamin Franklin

Bring a friend and your syllabus to the 2014 Faculty Technology Summer Institute.

We have reserved a seat for you at the 2014 Faculty Technology Summer Institute on August 19 and 20. The two day program represents a collaboration between the offices of Assessment and Education Technology and is supported by Academic Affairs, CELTSS and ITS.  This summer, ETO staff will be joined by Assessment Consultant Peggy Maki who will facilitate the first day of the two day program. Day two we invite you to join your colleagues in peer discussions that build on conversations with our consultant and a celebration of our Technology Innovation Grant recipients.

Institute agenda topics are organized on the theme of “Imagine the classroom in 2020” with a focus on Assessment, Technology and the exploration of the answers to these questions:

  • Who is our student/learner?
  • What is the potential for teaching and learning in 2020?
  • How can we use technology to build literacy and content knowledge skills?
  • How can we use technology to expand beyond the walls of the classroom?
  • Who am I as a teacher, and where do I need to grow to meet the needs of the learner?

As we look to the future of education, it is essential that we address the challenges facing our digital learners. Digital literacies and critical content knowledge are two skills our students need to succeed in their future careers – some of which are not yet invented. Participants who attend the institute will be provided with theory and applications for creating course objectives, learning opportunities, learn reliable and effective outcomes assessment strategies and participate in guided instruction in using technology that supports these efforts. We will also celebrate the successes of our recent Innovation Grant recipients and the faculty who received grants this year.
