Faculty Academy: Days 2 & 3
May 7, 2012
The Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology’s Faculty Academy seeks to provide faculty with the skills and knowledge of using technology and digital media to create significant learning experiences for students. This year’s Faculty Academy is composed of two tracks: Technology-facilitated Course Design (TFCD) and Digital Media Production (DMP). The TFCD track, led by Jon Messer and Dr. Matthew Trevett-Smith, will examine principles of instructional design, assessment and evaluation in Blackboard, and issues related to using rich and social media in course development. The DMP track, led by Hil Scott and Dr. Kenneth Warren, will explore the concepts and technologies of creating and publishing digital audio and video, as well as the production and pedagogy of digital storytelling.
The Faculty Academy began yesterday (5/7/12) with a keynote presentation by Dr. Gardner Campbell on Teaching, Learning and the Digital Imagination.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, faculty will break out into their selected track and engage in hands on activities and discussions with the track leaders and library liaison.
Each track has two full day of activities to look forward to.
