CILT and OID Teaching with Technology seminars are in May

Center for Instructional & Learning Technologies (CILT) in collaboration with Office of Instructional Development (OID) will be hosting the 8th Annual Teaching with Technology Seminars. The two seminars will last eight days and run (1st session) May 14–May 17 and May 20–May 23, from 12:30 to 4 p.m. and (2nd Session) June 10–June 13 and June 17-June 20, from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

The seminars are designed for faculty interested in using technology to enhance traditional classroom or online teaching. During the span of the eight days, participants will get one-on-one help from experienced technology users and CILT staff, plan and design a “technology component” for a course to be taught in the coming year, explore which technologies and pedagogies are most suited to accomplishing those learning goals, etc. The group will meet in seminar format to focus on teaching related aspects of the course projects and will use the CILT workshop lab and Multimedia Studio for hands-on learning and practice. The last day of the workshop will include presentations by the participants on their projects. A final report will be required at the end of the workshop and participants will also present to the campus during the following academic year.

Please go online to fill out the online form on the CILT web site at UND.edu/cilt/workshops/twt.cfm. Registration is limited to only 12 faculty (per seminar), and a $500 stipend is offered. Applications are being accepted and reviewed until April 1st. Applications will be notified by April 11, 2012 if accepted.
