SITT 2019: Building in Active Learning
Dear Faculty Colleagues,
The deadline for faculty microtalk proposals for the September 13th, 2019 Summer Institute on Teaching and Technology (SITT) is fast approaching. We hope you will consider submitting a proposal by May 24th.
We invite presentations on encouraging student engagement, integrating technologies to support student learning inside and outside of the classroom, and using Canvas to facilitate active learning. Because we always receive more proposals than can be accommodated during our one-day institute, some presenters will be asked to share their thoughts during the school year at our twice-monthly faculty forums on teaching with technology.
Please visit this invitation to propose your short presentation (or use this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfkB3t8C3ylnMoSWoeXHfNAsSp4OhhnAzKO5CZHNqLmRsggUw/viewform?usp=sf_link ). Please submit your proposal by Friday, May 24th.
Please also plan to join us on September 13th in 3 Kleiber for SITT, a highlight of our year of events on teaching with technology — we would love to benefit from your perspectives and teaching experiences. Expect an announcement soon with information about registration for SITT.
If you are reading this on the morning of Friday, May 17th, please also join us at noon today for our faculty forum on interactive video technologies in Surge III/The Grove.
