Ten KSC faculty have the opportunity to attend the USNH Academic Technology Institute this summer, May 27-30 (Tuesday, Noon – Friday, Noon). It will be hosted by the University of New Hampshire in Durham. If you are interested in attending, please apply here: http://goo.gl/6RW4W2 Applications are being accepted now through March 7th.
The theme for this year’s event is “Tools you can use: Teaching and learning with technology” and the speaker will be Cable Green of Creative Commons:
Participants will leave with a renewed inspiration to address their courses with the insights gleaned from Institute sessions, including topics such as technology as the teacher’s tool (not the teacher’s taskmaster), assignment design, (rich media) assessment strategies, and related technological issues pertinent to teaching and learning in higher education.
ATI participant Debbie Black (Education) had this to say about her experience:
“I am the most unlikely person to be writing this statement since I resist technology on so many levels. However, the Academic Technology Institute that I attended last summer broadened my thinking about ways that I can use technology as a tool to capture student learning. I now use Coaches Eye, Educreations, Google Docs and Pages on a regular basis in my work. I am teaching my Methods II students how to use this technology as well as elementary-aged students and their teachers. Currently I have three co-investigation science projects going on between a school in Cheshire County and three schools in the North Country. We are all using these technologies.”
