The Summer Institutes address best practices in using eLearn and other teaching/learning technologies at WSCC, an introduction to mobile learning, and an overview of “bleeding-edge technologies” (those not yet in common use by all faculty—such as ResponseWare, Camtasia, Turnitin, etc.). Both full-time and adjunct faculty are encouraged to apply. Faculty may attend more than one Summer Institute. Enrollment in the Summer Institutes, 2014, was limited to a total of 40 faculty members.
Faculty should confer with their department chair and/or dean before applying to a Summer Institute to discuss how the Summer Institute might help in accomplishing student learning outcomes, student engagement, and/or syllabus objectives in their courses. Each participant who successfully completes the Summer Institute will receive extra compensation of $250.00 (pre-tax).
The Summer Institutes are sponsored by the Division of Distance Education.
