What: Digital Pedagogy Institute
When: Monday, May 20 – Friday, May 24, TBD in December 2019
Where: Library Lab (025), Bertrand Library
Application Deadline: Friday, May 3, 2019
Purpose: This institute is intended to help faculty identify 2 or 3 modules or assignments in a course that could use a refresher or update. During the institute, faculty will work collaboratively with Library & IT staff to integrate established teaching methods with emerging digital methodologies and tools in order to 1.) meet course learning outcomes, 2.) increase student engagement, and 3.) 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 faculty 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, faculty will learn the necessary technology skills, and test run the assignment. At each stage of the process, faculty will receive feedback and assistance from members of DP&S and Research Services. After the initial week of the institute, faculty will have continued help and feedback in order to finalize the assignments and prepare them for implementation in a 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 class outcomes to the other institute participants.
Stipend: The stipend for 2018 Digital Pedagogy Summer Institute is $1,000. 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: Applications for the institute will be accepted on a rolling basis until 10 participants are selected or until 12:00 PM on May 10th. Applicants will be notified about the status of their application on a rolling basis but not later than 5 PM on May 10th. Please use the online form to apply for the institute.
