Melissa Green from the Center for Instructional Technology will be joining us this month to share highlights and experiences from this year’s UA System Scholars Institute series.
The Scholars Institute fosters a shared community of knowledge among members of the three UA System campuses. This summer’s online series includes live presentations, panel discussions, Q&As and other ways to discuss current challenges and opportunities in the use of technology in teaching and learning. Presentations align with the institute theme, “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Using Technology to Bridge Connections” and explore some aspect of technology’s role in teaching, research, and service.
Some specific topics covered this summer include:
- An overview of how the UA System community is responding to events related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)
- A student panel discussion of experiences of learning in an online or remote format during the spring 2020 semester
- A panelist conversation with members from UA, UAB, and UAH campuses on using and supporting Zoom for teaching, research, and service
