As an important component of the Boise State University Mobile Learning Initiative, the Teaching and Learning in a Mobile Environment summer institute will be held from May 21 to May 25.
This institute will enable faculty to consider creative pedagogical strategies to leverage the power of mobile devices to enhance teaching and learning. Areas of exploration might include enhancing student engagement, facilitating communication, expanding the borders of the learning environment and improving productivity. More information about the format and content of the institute can be found on the Summer Institute website.
Participants in the institute will receive an iPad to use for as long as they are employed at Boise State University, and will be expected to attend the entire institute. Because the number of seats is limited, faculty will need to complete a brief application. Applications are due April 13, and applicants will be notified by April 20.
The Boise State Mobile Learning Initiative is a campus-wide effort to explore the implications of an increasingly mobile environment on effective teaching and learning practices. The summer institute will be conducted under the leadership of Academic Technologies, the Center for Teaching and Learning, Albertsons Library, and the Office of Information Technology.
