Join us for our monthly gatherings — in the FIT Studio or via Zoom!
Teaching and Learning Innovations at CI aims to inspire community-oriented faculty development fueled through a spirit of openness and sharing. We encourage and support faculty to move out of their comfort zones and take risks in a supportive environment. We understand that risk-taking is at the core of innovation and risk-taking does not always lead directly to success. We celebrate mistakes and failures as learning opportunities.
One of our roles is to create regular opportunities for faculty to share and ensure all faculty are included. We do this by scheduling untethered faculty gatherings around broad-reaching topics related to teaching and learning in the digital era. All CI faculty are invited and may attend in person (in the FIT Studio) or via Zoom. Just register for the gathering you’d like to attend and we’ll take care of the rest.
Spring 2017 Community Gatherings (attend in the FIT Studio or via ZOOM*):
- Monday, February 6th, 12:00-1:30 – Shared Successes & Struggles in Teaching Blended Classes
Since 2012, more than 60 faculty have complete T&LI’s Blended Learning Preparation Program (BLPP). This gathering will be an opportunity for faculty to connect to share and discuss shared successes and struggles with teaching blended classes. Take a moment to reflect on your experiences, click the registration form above and share one problem and one success from your blended class. These will be used to facilitate our conversation on February 6th, which can be attended in person or remotely in Zoom.
And of course, even if you have never taught a blended course before but are curious about the possibilities join us!
- Friday, March 10th, 12:00-1:30 – Topic TBD (Request a topic here!)
- Friday, April 14th, 12:00-1:30 – Topic TBC (Request a topic here!)
*Faculty who register will receive a calendar invitation that includes the Zoom participation link.
