Student Mobile Learning Challenge
The Student Mobile Learning Challenge at Walters State challenges students to use their creativity, imagination, and skills to turn classroom knowledge into engaging presentations for other students. Students can use an app or web tool to turn the class assignments they have already completed into intriguing videos for other students. Check out our contest (opens in a new window) and see the two files below for details. Some student will win an iPad mini at the end of fall and spring semesters.
Rubrics allow faculty members to assess difficult-to-assess student assignments and activities; document faculty response to students; justify students' grades; and give students quick feedback.

Mobile Learning Fellows Program
The Mobile Learning Fellows (opens in a new window) program encourages faculty to explore methods of engaging students and increasing active student involvement using mobile devices and emerging technologies. Faculty interested in becoming a WSCC Mobile Fellow submit a proposal. The proposals are evaluated using the Criteria for Analysis for Proposals by a Fellows Committee composed of members appointed by the Mobilization Subcommittee. Two exemplary proposals are selected each year. After the proposals are selected, the Mobile Fellows carry out the plan indicated in their proposal during the following academic year. The Mobilization Subcommittee proudly congratulates the faculty selected for the Fellows program for 2016-2017:
Instructor of Sociology in the Behavioral and Social Science Division
Jessie Van der Laan
Instructor of Art in the Humanities Division
In addition to a stipend to reward their work, the Mobile Fellows are supported as they present the results of their work at conferences, conduct workshops, travel to other campuses, and serve as a resource to WSCC faculty interested in the pedagogy of mobile learning.
