USNH AT Institute
June 22-24, 2011
Conway, NH hosted by Granite State College
Program Description (details can be found at the USNH ATI wiki)
The first annual USNH Summer Faculty Technology Institute is a 2.5-day, hands-on learning experience for faculty from each USNH institution who would like to learn how to enhance their courses using rich media. The first Institute will take place in North Conway, NH from Wednesday, June 22 through noon on Friday, June 24. There will be a series of workshops, faculty panels, guest speakers and work sessions that will provide the basic skills and inspire participants to create a collaborative project integrating rich media. On the last day, faculty groups will present their projects and share reflections on how this can be used to enhance the teaching and learning in their own courses.
Each participant will be provided with the tools (e.g. laptop computer) to take back to their campuses where they can create rich media activities and assignments relevant to their own discipline. This year’s topics will include: · Creating audio/podcasting · Creating video · Creating and editing digital images · Creative Commons & other free resources · Copyright and other legal issues
Participants are expected to collaborate with their peers and Academic Technology staff at their institution to plan and hold a program (e.g. presentation, panel, demonstration, etc.) that highlights their efforts to integrate technology in their teaching. The program should be scheduled at their institution sometime before May 1, 2012.
