Summer Institute starts with the live remote session, then moves to the online self-paced learning, ending with a showcase of your learning

This summer the Summer Institute will be remote AND online. On Tuesday morning facilitators will demonstrate a concept and share effective examples of activities in 25-minute consecutive sessions in Microsoft Teams. Tuesday afternoon is reserved for faculty members to spend time 1-on-1 or in a small group with an Instructional Designer to work on tools specific to their needs.

The learning continues at your own pace online Wednesday through the start of the Fall quarter. In a Canvas course created specifically for the Summer Institute, choose an additional 3 topics of your choice. Go through the topic module and take a short quiz. Apply what you have learned from both the live sessions and in the online modules to your own Canvas courses.

The last part of the Summer Institute is to schedule a time to meet with an Instructional Designer prior to the start of the Fall quarter to showcase 1 way that you’ve applied the learning to your own courses. This is an opportunity to share your own tips and tricks and to ask further questions.

Faculty Stipends for attendance on the first day, completion of 3 x 30-minute self-paced modules, and a final 30-minute meeting with an Instructional Designer will be $200.

All participants will be enrolled in the eLearning Summer Institute 2020 which will open on August 18 at 7:00am
