Information Technology in Education Committee (ITEC)
Course Development Grants
for 2013-14 academic year
Faculty are invited to apply
to the first ITEC Summer Educational Technology Institute, designed to
encourage the thoughtful use of technology to expand liberal arts learning
beyond course timeslots and classroom walls.
The Summer Educational Technology Institute will take place from 9.00-12.00
on June 2-6, 2014, and participating faculty will receive stipends of $1000
upon completion of the workshop and a public presentation about related work.
The Institute’s goal is for
faculty to engage a range of technologies, linked to the pedagogies they might
best support, so that they can rethink an assignment, a sequence of
assignments, or indeed a whole course.
The first four days will
feature a mix of outside speakers, pedagogical discussions, and hands-on technological
training, and the educational technology group will be available in the
afternoons for one-on-one consultation. On the 6th, faculty members will workshop new
assignments or course plans with other participants.
We welcome applications from all faculty members on tenure-track or renewable appointments who expect to be employed at Trinity through 2014-15, including new hires who are beginning next academic year. Current ITEC members are not eligible.
