|Deadline for Models of Innovative & Best Practices in Teaching & Learning is Feb. 1|
For the last few years, we have been gathering models of good teaching practice here at UND, and you’ll find fifteen models from 2008 and 2009 -- ranging from help with online discussion boards and in class simulations to innovative graduate curriculum -- at the OID website under the Program tab (http://www.und.edu/dept/oid/Models_of_Practice%20call.html ).
The Faculty Instructional Development Committee (FIDC) and the Office of Instructional Development (OID) want to continue this tradition of acknowledging and sharing some of the many great things happening in UND’s classes. So we are asking you to add your insights into the mix by letting us know about the effective and/or innovative teaching and learning strategies that you have developed for our students. Our intent is to add to the compilation of inspiring models for others, which we are now sharing on campus to ground ongoing conversations on best teaching practices. We also hope that over time this collection might grow into something larger for an audience external to UND.
The proposal deadline for 2010 is noon Monday, Feb. 1, and the guidelines are available online (http://www.und.edu/dept/oid/Models_of_Practice%20call.html ). Faculty members with chosen models will receive $750. If you have any questions, call 777-4233 or email Anne Kelsch.
