SITT MC Dr. Andy Jones welcomes participants to SITT 2020The Summer Institute on Teaching and Technology (SITT) is the oldest yearly teaching institute at UC Davis, providing opportunities for faculty to collaborate with other colleagues and staff who are excited about enhancing student learning. SITT is a no-cost event hosted each year by Academic Technology Services, and is supported by many other units on campus, including the Center for Educational Effectiveness. For 2020, SITT took place entirely virtually during the week of July 20 with a mix of live online events and pre-recorded talks hosted by faculty and staff presenters on the theme "Remotely Possible: Moving Beyond the Emergency." All of this year's SITT presentations will be available indefinitely on this site, including recordings of live events. Additional materials are available to download on the details page for each talk or in the Resources section.
Recordings of every live SITT event from July 22, 23, and 24 are available for viewing, including a keynote address from Dr. Robert Blake, distinguished professor of Spanish and the Director of the Davis Language Center; faculty-hosted webinars; and online discussion sessions. Topics include improving student engagement and motivation in online settings, addressing student readiness for online learning, using pre-recorded videos in teaching, and more!
SITT 2020 includes two types of pre-recorded content: interviews with faculty conducted by Dr. Andy Jones and brief talks by faculty and staff. Topics include making virtual office hours more successful, facilitating online student-led reading groups, fostering instructor presence in remote teaching, organizing a Canvas course for clarity, and more!
