The purpose of this initiative is to provide focused time for a cohort of faculty to learn, work both collaboratively and independently to focus on their teaching, learn new pedagogy techniques and course design theory, and to significantly revise a course that will be taught by the faculty member during the 2018/19 school year. The overall intent is to significantly enhance the teaching and learning at Mines systemically.
Each faculty member will be provided one-month of support (salary for the full month = 22 days of salary) in July/August 2018 to participate in this intense learning and working session. This summer session will include classes, readings, and time to work alongside pedagogy and curriculum experts as faculty design or revise a targeted course. There will also be intentional breaks woven in to the schedule to allow you to pause and apply the new learning to your own teaching plans. You will be expected to participate in workshop and collaborative activities scheduled during the program, and to have the course revisions ready before the start of the semester in August 2018.
