Boise State University’s strategic plan, “Focus on Effectiveness”, states as its first goal that we should “Create a signature, high-quality educational experience for all students”. One of the strategies to support this goal is to “Invest in faculty development, innovative pedagogies, and an engaging environment for learning.” Academic programs are invited to submit a proposal for Mobile Learning Strategies in an Academic Program. One academic program will be supported to make and assess transformative and innovative changes to the teaching and learning environments within the program, using pedagogies enabled by mobile technology.
Mobile Learning Strategies in an Academic Program is part of the Mobile Learning Initiative. This initiative is a campus-wide effort to explore the implications of an increasingly mobile environment on effective teaching and learning practices.
Project teams will receive the following benefits for participation.
Eligible programs are those that award credit leading to a collegiate-level degree or certificate. A set of courses which cross departments or programs but are connected such that students move through the courses in a particular way, as dictated by the curriculum, are also eligible.
The following optional question-and-answer sessions give potential applicants an opportunity to ask questions about the request for proposals, the expectations and goals of the program, or anything else they want clarified.
This program is funded by the Boise State Mobile Learning Initiative and is supported by the following campus organizations:
