This community welcomes participants of all capabilities and experiences using technology as an instructional tool in the classroom. Meeting every 2-3 weeks, the community will offer members the opportunity to investigate, discuss, implement and critique the integration of technology into their teaching as a means of enhancing student learning. Key outcomes for participants will focus on identifying the strengths and weaknesses of particular technology tools, how to determine the appropriate use of technology, and methods for assessing the impact of technology on learning outcomes.
Participants may engage in the following activities:
- Participants will determine the selection of topics for seminars and workshops that will guide the activities of the community for the academic year.
- During the fall semester faculty members will explore a wide range of possibilities for integrating technology into teaching.
- In the spring semester, participants will build on knowledge and insights gained during the fall semester to propose, design and implement teaching projects aimed at using technology to enhance student learning.
