2013 Summer Innovation Institute Day 1

Bright and early on an August summer day, 16 faculty representing six colleges at the University of San Diego gathered to help kick-off ITS’ first Summer Innovation Institute.  Faculty heard from members of the iTeam about how to create an exemplary course in Blackboard and new features in Blackboard 9.1 Service Pack 12; Carole Huston, Associate Dean of CAS, about assessment and rubric design; and Marcy Darby, Assistant Director of the Center for Educational Excellence, on syllabus design.

They concluded the afternoon with a partnered discussion on what they would change in their syllabi as a result of what they learned from the day’s speakers, and some reflective learning–journaling about their experiences at the SII. Below are some photos from the first day.
