The Office of the Provost, along with Educational Technology (EdTech), is issuing a second call for participation in the 2013 eFellows program. This program is an opportunity for instructors to redesign their courses to incorporate more technology, with the overall goal of improving student performance.
This round of proposals will only be for Tier 2 and Tier 3 projects.
Tier 2 – Stepwise Redesign (up to $2,000) is an intermediate step between Tiers 1 and 3. It is smaller in scope than Tier 1, focusing on one or more aspects of a single course, rather than a full course redesign. A Tier 2 project could eventually lead to a course redesign over time.
Tier 3 – Teaching with Technology (up to $1,000) eFellows projects are about the adoption of technology and the teaching strategies to improve teaching and learning.
Interested participants are strongly encouraged to review the video of the 2013 eFellows Program Participation Workshop from the Teaching and Learning Technology Conference 2012. The presentation can be found at the link below, along with the PowerPoint slides:
EdTech also hosts an eLearning Community of Practice (eCoP) which is a peer learning community that coincides with the eFellows program and is especially helpful for instructors who are interested exploring ideas before attempting a full course redesign. Along with the eFellows, members of the eCoP will be invited to participate in a blended course, CyberEd (inside of Blackboard), that introduces essential concepts and best practices for eLearning. eCoP participants will receive consultation and assistance from EdTech staff on applying these practices to their courses, in small scale, at their option.
If you would like to request an application packet for the 2013 eFellows Program at the Tier 2 or Tier 3 level, please send a brief letter (email) of intent as described in the brochure linked below to Meg Brady (firstname.lastname@example.org).
An instructional designer or technologist will be assigned to work with you to complete the application. Alternately, you can schedule an appointment or stop by EdTech U (Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in IDE 105).
Applications are due no later than Friday, October 26, 2012.
