What: Digital Pedagogy Institute
When: Monday, May 21 – Friday, May 25 and Tuesday, August 14th
Where: Bertrand 025 (Library Lab)
Application Deadline: Monday, March 12, 2018
Purpose: This institute is intended to help faculty identify and create 2-3 specific modules or assignments for a course that integrate established teaching methods with emerging digital methodologies and tools in order to meet your learning outcomes, increase student engagement, and further students’ digital literacy skills. The institute is aligned with the University’s digital scholarship initiative, whereby teaching and research are enhanced, extended, or reconsidered through application of technology.
Structure: Over the course of the week–May 21-25–you will work with members of Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship and Research Services in order to develop new assignments or alter existing ones. After drafting the assignments, you will learn the necessary technology skills, and test run your assignment. At each stage of the process, you will receive feedback and assistance from members of DP&S and Research Services. After the initial week of the institute, you will have continued help and feedback in order to finalize the assignments and prepare them for implementation in your course. In August, we will reconvene and discuss the progress of the assignment design, any challenges that need to be addressed before the start of the semester, finalize rubrics for assessment, and present your work to the other participants.
Stipend: The stipend for 2018 Digital Pedagogy Summer Institute is $1,500. Participants must commit to attending both sessions. We will have a follow-up lunch in December to discuss the success and challenges you experienced during the first semester of the integration.
Eligibility: Untenured and tenured faculty are eligible. Faculty in the last year of an appointment are not eligible.
Application: Space is limited. Please use the online form to apply for the institute. The deadline for applications is Monday, March 12, 2018.
