Join a Special Interest Group (SIG)! A SIG is a community of learners who explore themes in teaching, learning, and technology.
Do you want to increase student engagement in the classroom? Do you want to try out new technologies? Or, do you want to solve a real teaching problem you are currently facing?
We invite you to participate in our Teaching with Technology Special Interest Group (SIG). This SIG provides faculty the opportunity to work with others across campus to participate in a shared experience around exploring and using Design Thinking as a strategy to help address teaching challenges. Design Thinking is a creative approach to designing solutions for complex challenges by understanding people’s needs and forming insights to meet those needs.
In this SIG, you will learn and apply the Design Thinking process to solve a real teaching challenge you’re facing. We will meet five times throughout the semester for 90 minutes. Meeting times are determined by participant availability. When we meet, we will discuss, plan, and reflect on different design thinking activities. During the weeks when we don’t meet, you will be doing some light, assigned reading and will be implementing your planned design thinking activities.
All faculty and instructors are eligible to participate. Space is limited so please RSVP to express interest and provide availability by Wednesday, January 31, 2018.
We will meet 4 times for approximately 60 - 90 minutes depending on applicants schedules. All faculty and instructors are eligible to participate. Space is limited so please RSVP to express interest and provide availability by Wednesday, January 31, 2018.
