May 4 - May 7
Deadline for submission 4/14/15
This year's Technology Design Your Own Spring Break Seminar will focus on taking advantage of the growing collection of technologies and resources available to help faculty change and enhance the way they deliver instruction both inside and outside of the classroom. In previous years, the technology focus of the Project proposal has evolved as participants learn more about the wide range of possibilities to deliver content, provide collaboration opportunities and assess learning.
This year, applicants should indicate a very specific Lesson topic with objectives and assessment plan in the application, but the specific software programs will not need to be selected in the application phase. Instead, if your application is accepted - you will have the opportunity to see examples and demos of various tools and techniques and work with an instructional designer to "Design Your Own" seminar.
Below is a list of workshops that will be available during the Seminar. The list may be modified as applications are received. CTD Instructional Designers will work with applicants prior to the selection date to make sure all applications are equal in terms of feasibility based on time constraints, software licensing, prerequisite skills and software/instructor availability.
