The 2017 Teaching with Technology Workshop will focus specifically on online and blended courses and will guide faculty and instructors through instructional design models that will help them thoughtfully integrate digital tools, content, and pedagogies to create engaging online or blended learning experiences.
Dates / Time Commitment
The workshop events will take place as follows:
- Friday, December 1st @ 12-4 pm - Workshop
- Winter Quarter 2018 - One lunch meeting during which participants will share ideas and their progress on their online learning modules
- Spring Quarter 2018 - Project showcase event to be scheduled during Spring Quarter 2018
Participants will spend approximately 20 hours before, during, and after the workshop to design, develop, implement, and evaluate their project. Finally, participants will be expected to participate in a group meeting during winter quarter and in the spring quarter they will share the results of their project in a form that can be disseminated to the larger Stanford community (e.g., presentation at VPTL’s Grant Showcase, video interview, blog post).
Applications Due Wednesday, November 22
Interested faculty and instructors should identify a single course or lesson for which s/he would like to design an online or blended learning module and include this in the brief application form. Teaching teams that include graduate students as co-teachers/designers are also encouraged to apply. Please include in your application how the student will contribute and benefit in his/her professional development. As part of the application, your Department Chair will need to complete a short support form. The application deadline is November 22, 2017.
About the Workshop
During the workshop, participants will integrate technology and pedagogy to design engaging online or blended learning experiences for their own courses. Content of the workshops will include: models for thoughtfully integrating pedagogy and digital learning modalities, examples of innovative use of online learning environments, and professional support and resources to develop digital media and other learning content.
After participating in the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Apply models of technology and pedagogy integration to the design of an engaging online or blended learning module.
- Design, develop, implement, and evaluate an online learning module for use in an online or blended course.
- Share the online learning module, its implementation, and its strengths and challenges with fellow participants and the Stanford community.
Who Should Apply
Stanford faculty, instructors, and graduate student co-teachers who will be teaching at least one course during AY 2017-2018. The TwT-Online Workshop is also open to staff who manage education or learning platforms within their department or center, with faculty sponsorship. Interested applicants should be able to describe a course or specific learning module for which s/he would like to develop an online learning environment. Applicants are also expected to have departmental support for their involvement in the workshop. A total of up to 15 projects will be accepted into the program. We encourage both individual applicants and teaching teams to participate.
Modest Discretionary Funds Available
Participants who complete the workshop will be given $1250 in discretionary funding to recognize their efforts and support the continued development of their projects. Of this amount, $900 will be awarded upon completion of the workshop, with the remaining $350 awarded after results of the project have been shared during Spring Quarter 2018. Teaching teams that include a graduate student co-teacher or co-designer can receive an additional $250 in the form of a stipend to be awarded to this student upon completion of the workshop.
This program is supported through funding from the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning.
