Summer Institute

What is Summer Institute?

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.

  • What to bring:
    • A syllabus in electronic format
    • A quiz or test in a WORD document
    • Earbuds
    • iPad
  •  What we learn:
    • News items, dropbox folders, discussion board forums and topics, content modules and files, ADA compliance
    • Respondus, quiz creation, quiz management, “off label” uses of the quiz tool
    • Library databases, free materials for your discipline from the web (“Open Educational Resources”), library services, linking library articles and essays into eLearn (“permalinks”)
    • Mobile learning, iPads, iPad carts, apps, finding apps, using apps in the classroom

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.
