2018-19 Theme Announced!

The 2018-19 Teaching and Learning Community will explore transparency in teaching and learning. Fellows will engage with scholarly research on the impact of transparency in course, outcome, and assignment design and consider how incorporating a transparent framework may promote equity in student learning and success. Fellows will make revisions to one course throughout the year while the learning community discusses the challenges of implementing transparent design. Look for the call mid-semester!

Stay tuned for more details!

Online Teaching Fellows

The online teaching fellows program revived this Winterim. As in the past there were two tracks: the Starter Online Teaching Fellows Program and the Advanced Online Teaching Fellows Program.The Starters program focused on ways to create a digital environment for learning where instructors can share with students the beauty of their disciplines. The sessions centered on writing objectives, creating ways to measure student learning, developing online activities, and locating the digital tools necessary to making one’s class work. We also discussed the trade-offs of the digital learning environment and developed ways to come to terms with the limits of online education. The Starters – Daniel Alesch, Greg Engle, Mary Gichobi, Lisa Grubisha, Jennifer Ham, Margaret Kubek, Vivek Madupu, Ellen Rosewall, and William Sallak – are beginners no more.

The Advanced Online Teaching Fellows program led experienced online educators through the process to earn Quality Matters certification. Quality Matters is a faculty-directed and peer-reviewed quality assurance program which began and the University of Maryland and has since become a standalone organization. The work of our new Advanced Fellows – Vallari Chandna and Sawa Senzaki – does not end with the closing of the Winterim period. They will continue to work at earning QM certification into the next semester. Yet, the hard work that they have already shown in developing thoughtful and rich digital learning environments will benefit them and their students for years to come. The QM certification that they will earn will ratify that these are already great courses.

The Starter Program will run again in May, after the Spring semester. We will issue the call the call (via this Blog and elsewhere) to apply in March.
