Call for Applicants!

If you are interested in applying, we highly recommend attending the information session:

Get your questions answered and submit your application all at once!  If you plan on attending the info session, please RSVP at psu-cetl@plymouth.edu

Overview:

Each year 10 faculty from each of the USNH institutions (GSC, KSC, PSU and UNH) are invited to attend the annual USNH Academic Technology Institute (ATI). This year the ATI will be hosted by Keene State College, May 29-June 3 (from Tuesday afternoon to noon, Friday). The theme for this year’s event is “Open Education: Pedagogy & Scholarship in a Connected Environment” and focusing on open educational resources, open pedagogy and open access publishing.

In conjunction with the new USNH-funded Open Education initiative, the ATI is expanding its scope this year. In addition to the four-day event, participants (faculty fellows) will commit to a year-long project. Their projects will be in one or more of the following areas of their choosing:

Open Education Resources:
Open educational resources (OER) are instructional resources created and shared in ways so that more people have access to them. That’s a different model than traditionally-copyrighted materials. OER are defined as “teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others.” (Hewlett Foundation) Examples: textbooks, modules, tutorials, simulations.

Open Pedagogy:
“Looking at open pedagogy as a general philosophy of [Open Education] in all elements of the pedagogical process, while messy, provides some interesting possibilities. Open is a purposeful path towards connection and community. Open pedagogy could be considered as a blend of strategies, technologies, and networked communities that make the process and products of education more transparent, understandable, and available to all the people involved.” (Tom Woodward) Examples: student blogs, student publishing, annotating the web, student-driven course content.

Open Access:
Open access refers to online research outputs that are free of all restrictions on access (e.g., access tolls) and free of many restrictions on use (e.g. certain copyright and license restrictions). Open access can be applied to all forms of published research output, including peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed academic journal articles, conference papers, theses, book chapters, course syllabi. (SPARC)

Here is a short 4 minute overview on Open Education:
2-10-2016 1-41-44 PM

Faculty are encouraged to apply in pairs or teams and design an Open Education Project that will have a broader (perhaps interdisciplinary) and more sustained impact on teaching, learning and/or scholarship.

If you are selected as a faculty fellow, prior to the ATI you (or your team) will be asked to submit a draft Open Education Project Plan. You will be given opportunities and support during ATI to work on your project plan with the expectation that the majority of the actual project work will occur over the summer in preparation for a fall (or spring) course. Support will continue to be available through the duration of your faculty fellowship (May 2017).

 

Faculty selected must be available for the entire ATI schedule. In addition, the group will decide on three follow-up meetings:

  • one in the fall 2016 semester to share work in progress with campus colleagues;
  • one in January 2017 to reconnect with USNH fellows to share findings from their projects;
  • one in the spring 2017 semester to provide an update which may highlight more detailed assessment findings then in previous events.

 

The stipend for faculty fellows for the year-long Institute is $2,000 paid in two installments: $1,000 for the submission of the Open Education Project Plan due by the end of June 2016 and $1000 at the end of the spring 2017 semester.

 

We hope you will join us for this system-wide educational event where you can directly participate in shaping Open Education in New Hampshire and beyond!

Application deadline is midnight, February 29th.

 

The ATI and the Open Education initiative are projects of the USNH Academic Technology Steering Committee and are funded by the USNH Long Range Technology Plan.

“Slow Reading”

September 25th, 2015 by Melinda

 

“Reading” is one of our General Education skills, but what does this skill entail? Join in this conversation to expand our ideas on what “good reading” means across disciplines and discourses. Borrowing from Tom Newkirk’s book “Slow Reading,” we’ll work against some notions/measures of successful reading (speed, amount, some “study skills” approaches, etc.) to focus on six practices Newkirk recommends: performing, memorizing, centering, problem finding, reading as a writer, elaborating.

Tuesday, Feb 23rd 12:00-1:00 p.m. at CETL Faculty Lounge (Lamson 113)

Facilitator: Elliott Gruner, Director of Composition.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend via email to psu-cetl@plymouth.edu
