The Buzz on June Summer Institute Programming!

Course Development at Wentworth Institute

LIT successfully launched it’s first Course Development at Wentworth Institute June 6th-8th, 2017! Eleven faculty and staff journeyed through an intensive hands-on process to create a course map using a backward course design model that aligns objectives with assessments tools, assignments, and course delivery methods. Charlie Wiseman, co-chair of the Institute Curriculum Committee, provided ICC guidelines and facilitated a robust Q/A dialogue. Cidhinnia Torres Campos, Director of Institutional Effectiveness, shared how her team supports outcomes assessment and rubrics. LIT is revising the 3-day institute based on valuable feedback from participants. Look for an offering in Fall and Spring!

Deepen Student Engagement in Lectures with Interaction with Echo360 June 13th 2017

Eight faculty participated in a workshop to learn how to engage students in presentations and lectures while gathering analytics on what that engagement looks like. Students can respond to embedded polling, flag slides they have questions on, submit questions, and take notes in sync with your material. Feedback was very positive. Look for another offering of this workshop in late September.
