ASSETT invites Arts & Sciences faculty (including graduate students with instructional duties) to join one of our Fall 2019 Special Interest Groups (SIGs). A SIG is a community of learners exploring themes in teaching, learning, and technology. 

Current offerings include:

Maximizing Student Engagement with Course Readings: This SIG will explore ways of maximizing student engagement through course readings. Participants will be guided through four different activities and encouraged to discuss how they might use the activities during class. We will meet four times throughout the semester. Light snacks will be provided.

(Re)Envisioning Learning Spaces: Participants in this SIG will engage in hands-on exploration of the affordances of learning spaces, both physical and virtual. They will then collaborate with peers to develop strategies to maximize the opportunities of their learning space while mitigating its limitations. Approximate total time commitment is 8 to 10 hours.

BuffsCreate: Participants will receive a domain and web hosting, support and training, to initiate a web-based scholarly or pedagogical project in conversation with colleagues from across the college. While building our own individual domains, this group will consider how digital technologies are entwined in how we teach, learn, and create.

Spaces are limited. Sign up by September 16 to reserve your spot.
