Looking for a reason to attend this year's Summer Faculty Institute? Here's our Top 10 list!
10. Listen to amazing featured speakers: Each day begins with an energizing perspective on teaching. Beginning with Reinhold Steinbeck from Stanford University on Tuesday, June 1, to Bryan Carter (via Second Life) from the University of Central Missouri on Wednesday, June 2, to UD's own Alan Fox on Thursday, June 3, you'll take away new ideas and inspiration. A limited number of faculty participants can follow up Steinbeck's keynote presentation on design thinking with an in-depth, activity-based interactive workshop.
9. Sessions are faculty-led, but student-focused: A word analysis of the 40 session titles shows "student" is the most frequently used word. The sessions may deal with using technology, but succeed only if they intensify student connection with class material, develop team-building skills and improve a student's chance for success in the course and long-term success at the University.
