Institute on Active & Experiential Learning Application (workshop facilitators)
The Office of Faculty Development will be offering an Institute on Active & Experiential Learning in Summer 2021 (June 8-15). The Institute is designed to offer faculty practical tools, resources, and ideas to use in the classroom to facilitate and promote more active methods of learning.
Faculty will receive $300 in taxable income to run a 1-hour workshop that must include practical and engaging activities for the institute participants. In particular, workshops must be designed so that participants will be able to apply what they learned in the workshop directly to their course (design an assignment based on experiential learning, plan a class activity, use a classroom space in ways that facilitate active learning, create partnerships with local businesses or institutions, etc.). Workshop facilitators must attend an informational meeting with the Director of Faculty Development before the Institute begins.
Workshops should cover at least one of the following topics:
- student research;
- innovative use of classroom space;
- civic and global engagement;
- application of learning to professional fields
- collaborations with local institutions and businesses
- scholarship of teaching and learning
