Technology, Pedagogy, Curriculum + Research 2016

Just over a month ago, we completed the 2016 iteration of our Technology, Pedagogy, Curriculum + Research (TPC+R) program. Led by Mairead Sullivan and Alan Pike, the six-week intensive program introduced Laney Graduate School students to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, best practices in curriculum, syllabus, and assignment design, learning outcomes, and how to best use technology for their research and teaching needs. In addition, we introduced students to the tools and methods that will help them succeed as 21st century scholars. If you are interested in learning more about the program, view our course blog and syllabus here. As a result, our six participants left the program with their own professional websites, redesigned syllabi, and a variety of digital assignments. Our participants and instructors are pictured below, and we want to congratulate them on all of their hard work and wish them the best of luck!IMG_2144
