2017 Digital Pedagogy Fellows, May 30-June 9

It's back by faculty request! An intensive nine day learning experience designed to provide full-time faculty with a basic understanding of the course development model, Understanding by Design, a pedagogy that challenges teachers to think about the big ideas and real world applications we want our students to acquire while participating in our courses. This, along with the selection of engaging activities and assessments that are aligned with the course objectives, often results in a newly designed course. Technology tools are then chosen that create the desired learning environment. A morning of final presentations allows participants to show their colleagues how they have re-invented a portion of their course. Previous participants have left feeling invigorated and equipped to think about their courses in a new manner. An additional highlight of this workshop included the formation of an ongoing professional learning community where faculty and workshop facilitators were able to share experiences, ideas, questions, and to explore new approaches as faculty began implementing what they learned. Participants will be encouraged to continue this tradition.

Workshop sessions will be conducted in a combination of face-to-face, and online sessions with 1:1 and small group instruction.
