ETM offers a host of professional development opportunities, from one-off workshops or conversations to year-long courses. This year, ETM will continue their successful Online Teaching Working Group series each quarter, focusing the 10-week programs around a topic of digital scholarship interest. For Fall 2015, the topic is Using the Open Web in Teaching (you will end the class with at least one beautifully built website). (More)
ETM will also partner with Library Technology will offer a year-long professional development course based around active learning strategies as realized through tablet-based computing (the course is full; however, visit their website for course readings, created artifacts, blogs and updates).
In the spirit of the common good and the public sphere, ETM will host monthly faculty salons, or times where the ETM office is open for any faculty to come in and work on or share their explorations of teaching and learning. This can be the extension of an Academic Innovation Grant, the testing of a new idea, or the genesis of creative thinking in pedagogy. The entire ETM staff will be available to listen, support and share feedback. More importantly, fellow faculty will be available to do the same. (More)
