EdTech is hosting an eFellows Call for Participation
Workshop on Wednesday, March 21 in Engineering
Management 103 at Noon.
This is primarily aimed at potential candidates who
were unable to attend the first workshop opportunity at the recent Teaching and
Learning Technology conference. However, it
is open to any instructor who wishes to apply
.

If you are interested in redesigning your course to take
advantage of new technologies to improve student outcomes, or simply to reach
more students, then this workshop may be for you.

This workshop will unveil the newly expanded Missouri
S&T Provost’s eFellows Program for 2013. The eFellows Program is designed
to incentivize and support faculty to redesign courses using best practices for
teaching methodologies and technology for blended or online delivery. 

Mini-grants are available to support the redesign process as
well as focused support and instructional design expertise from Educational
Technology. Participation in this workshop is required before applying to
the 2013 eFellows Program. Program materials and application packets will be
distributed at the workshop.
