Come learn more about technology and join the iTeam this summer at the Summer Innovation Institute, starting June 1st through June 12th!
What is the Summer Innovation Institute? The SII is a 2-week, intensive transformational instructional program for full-time, benefit-based faculty. SII will enable faculty to build or improve a current Blackboard course, utilize learning technologies and functionality designed to increase student engagement. We will examine course materials, discover techniques for ‘flipping the classroom’ and delve into pedagogical theory with hands-on course development opportunities and guidance from the ITS instructional support team. Participants will greatly expanded their technology toolkits and become more confident deploying instructional technologies for academic use.
Who can attend? Any full time, benefits based faculty member! There’s even a stipend for those faculty members that do attend, as well as use of an iPad.
Are there any prerequisites for coming? Yes – completion of 2 hour Blackboard New Users training (if you haven’t, click here to see upcoming opportunities through IT Training), pre-course survey, and pre-assigned reading assignments.
