Each year 10 faculty from each of the USNH institutions (GSC, KSC, PSU and UNH) are invited to attend the annual USNH Academic Technology Institute (ATI). This year the ATI will be hosted by Granite State College in Concord, May 26-29 (from noon, Tuesday to noon, Friday). The theme for this year’s event is “Open Access: Pedagogy & Scholarship in a Connected Environment” covering topics such as open educational resources, open access pedagogy and open access publishing. Robin DeRosa, (PSU English Faculty & ATI Alum 2014) tells you a little more about this year’s theme here.
This popular multi-day, hands-on learning experience focuses on helping you enhance teaching and learning in your subject area using educational technology for meaningful innovation. There will be a series of workshops, demos, guest speakers and work sessions that will provide basic skills while also inspiring participants. The ultimate goal is to identify an instructional challenge that you face and identify a solution based on the integration of one or more educational technologies or methodologies. Visit the ATI website to learn more about the ATI and past events.
Benefits of Participation:
Faculty who participate in the ATI leave with a new or renewed sense of enthusiasm for what is possible in teaching in the 21st century. They also leave with new connections with faculty throughout the University System. As two ATI alumni noted:
“I kept finding moments of inspiration, little light bulb moments, all throughout the institute.”
“What a terrific opportunity to talk with peers across institutions.”
