Last May, I participated in the “Faculty Technology Institute” run by the Teaching, Learning, and Technology (TLT) department. We spent a week during summer learning about the “Hows and Whys” of using technology in teaching and research. Along with a stipend, the FTI supplied each participant with an iPad-3. By participating in the FTI, we were required to make a “1-1-1 Committment”:
The 1-1-1 Commitment:
Faculty agree to employ at least one (1) tool and/or strategy introduced in the 2011 Summer FTI into at least one (1) courses or research within one (1) year of completion of the FTI.
Faculty can report on the results in the form of a scholarly paper, series of blog posts, or a self-contained digital presentation, such as a video or a slideshow with voice-over. The projects will be posted on the TLT blog and shared with the campus community.
I plan to write several more blog postings about my course changes since the FTI, and I’ll try to keep a running list here along with permalinks.
