Faculty Teaching in the Digital Age Workshop

Supporting Faculty Teaching Students in a Digital Age Workshop

Wednesday, May 11 from 7:30am - 12:00pm
Thursday, May 12 from 8:00am - 1:00pm
Milo Bail Student Center, Dodge Room

All faculty are invited to a two-day interactive workshop highlighting key principles of a digital learning environment. Participants will learn strategies to redesign course elements for the purpose of engaging students and improving learning. This is an interactive workshop in which participants are expected to bring a course syllabus or outline and work collaboratively with colleagues to identify and discuss areas for improvement in their courses.

This is a two half-day interactive workshop where faculty will have an opportunity to become acquainted with:

  • newer pedagogical related theories/principles (human cognition/cognitive load, diffusion of innovation) that can be used to improve instruction/solve pedagogical problems;
  • peers who have successfully adapted courses by integrating these theories/principles in their own courses;
  • the course redesign models and methods endorsed by the National Center for Academic Transformations; and
  • hi tech and no tech resources that be used to improve student learning.

So take the time to think about an instructional problem that you would like to tackle. Grab the syllabus for that course and plan on joining us for time to discover some new ways to approach the issue at hand. Click here for a more detailed workshop schedule.
