Each of the five Faculty Fellows will be hosting a Special Interest Group (SIG) on their selected topic (listed below). These SIG's will be open to all faculty beginning Fall 2017! Watch the Fellows' videos to learn what each will be discussing in their upcoming SIGs.
Tech Time in the Classroom & for the Workplace
The Tech Time special interest group provides a collaborative environment to explore the integration of technology with instruction and learning, while building skills and self-efficacy to bravely embrace the unknown as we take this journey together.
Delve into a world of learner-centered pedagogy this year, and explore ways to transform your courses' assignments to encourage significant learning among your students while increasing their information literacy within your discipline.
Teaching for Transfer
Explore ways to help your students apply their prior knowledge and abilities to your courses, and discover how to teach course concepts in ways that help your students transfer those concepts to unfamiliar frameworks and future challenges.
Universal Design of Instruction
My Special Interest Group will explore ways to improve inclusivity and accessibility to the principles of Universal Design. Universal Design is a model for higher education institutions that aims to remove barriers to learning by designing all products and environments to be accessible to everyone, without the need for specialized modifications or accommodations.
Asking Better Questions
Join us to revisit that first radical piece of active learning: the question. We'll start with the premise that the quality of discussion you get in your courses is directly proportional to the quality of questions you ask. And then we'll look under every rock to better the discussions in our classrooms.
