Goal: To Provide instructors with innovative instructional using technology effectively to improve class presentations and active learning.
Description: The Roy J. Carver Trust is providing funding for an exciting three-year project to improve teaching and learning in the general education program. The initiative involves summer institutes for selected faculty UNI Carver Fellows that will provide the foundation for ongoing collaborative faculty learning communities. The project will promote the integration of technologically sophisticated learning strategies in our most highly enrolled courses, namely, the multi-section courses in the Liberal Arts Core.
Enhance student learning in the Liberal Arts Core through training for faculty in innovative instructional strategies and educational technology;
Specifically, the project will provide two institutes each summer, beginning in Summer, 2004 and ending in Summer, 2006. We anticipate 120 faculty participants (20 in each of the six institutes), with appropriate follow-up activities to support the faculty communities that develop during each institute.
Since the focus of the institutes is to assist faculty to move forward in their use of innovative learning strategies and instructional technologies and to facilitate idea and resource sharing, the daily activities of the institutes will provide opportunities for:
• examination of ways that particular types of strategies and technology can compliment and supplement learning activities;
Dates: May 12-21; 8:30 AM-12:30 PM, Monday-Friday
