What do OSU faculty get out of participation in a Blended Faculty Learning Community? In the words of Cameron Fischer, Human Development and Family Sciences Instructor at OSU Cascades and Summer ’21 learning community participant:
- Support and encouragement from colleagues across disciplines.
- Inspiration to try new teaching approaches and learning modalities.
- Practical teaching advice and assignment ideas to increase student engagement.
- Free technological tools, websites, and other helpful resources to strengthen blended learning.
Does Cameron’s learning community experience sound appealing? Then submit a brief proposal by Nov. 22 for the Winter ’22 Blended Faculty Learning Community to join 8 to 12 OSU teaching colleagues in a supportive community focusing on addressing your personal teaching challenges through effective use of ed tech in Corvallis and Cascades campus courses.
The format is hybrid with a combination of five Zoom meetings and learning activities on Canvas. Participants receive a copy of Derek Bruff’s Intentional Tech and $500 in professional development funds for completion of the program. CTL welcomes all levels of teaching experience and ed tech skills.
