    and communication New models of technology enhanced teaching and learning in all forms and with a wide range of tools and modalities Burgeoning environment of online courses and programs that enable institutions to reach new audiences in new ways that also challenge these same institutions to define where and how they may best contribute Georgetown is beginning a University wide initiative that will drive discussion and deliberation of the best way for us to use these new tools to enhance the lives of faculty and students and to advance priority themes that emerged from a series of self examinations beginning in the 1990s that emphasize greater depth in the curriculum and co curriculum more Self studies include the Intellectual life Reports 1997 2007 A Call to Action 2009 Middle States Self Study 2012 Persistent themes and priorities include Greater depth in the curriculum and co curriculum Expanded focus on research based learning and the intersections of the educational and scholarly missions Expansion of interdisciplinary collaborations within the University and globally Expansion of integrative approaches to solving complex problems and addressing enduring questions We are beginning the Initiative with a review of current work and new possibilities in meetings across the Main Campus which will also provide input on what evaluations and pilot projects we should mount This initiative will entail University investments in faculty time campus infrastructure and partnerships with consortia of universities sharing similar goals to gain access to tools that would otherwise be cost prohibitive The Provost and deans of the Main Campus have articulated a set of Guiding Principles and Goals that should motivate these discussions and the pilot projects The expectations we place on our curriculum are continually expanding as is the store of knowledge and range of skills required This initiative is an opportunity to identify develop assess and model new ways of using existing and emerging technological resources to enhance student learning to meet these needs expand goals To continually assess how to make the best use of our instructional resources in order to achieve our ambitions for our students To create techniques for our students to handle an ever increasing store of knowledge to more effectively learn the basics of each discipline and to acquire new knowledge with increased independence To evaluate options for creating new combinations of self paced online strategies for fact based learning research based learning and intensive interaction for synthesis appreciating that these experiences will vary within and among humanities social sciences and natural sciences We value faculty student interaction and high impact learning as the heart of our educational mission In this initiative we seek to identify develop and assess changes in faculty roles inside and outside the classroom due to technology enhanced pedagogies in ways that are sustainable within the teaching and research expectations of the University expand goals To optimize use of digital resources and computer assisted learning strategies to leverage faculty time for more effective student interaction create more opportunity for high impact learning and

    in a small focused course experiment During the development process cohort members will work together to examine such questions as How might game applications and simulations be used to deepen students engagement with material in the classroom How can simulations help students develop a more complete understanding of a complex system or construct models of a system through exploration How can the reward structures of a game help to build expert behaviors in a content area How can simulations or games which engage multiple users together help to build scholarly or professional practices and communication skills among classmates Theme C Flipping the Classroom with Open Educational Resources This cohort will integrate open educational resources such as MOOCS online simulations and other open free course content or materials freshly created and openly licensed as an OER for use in current on campus courses as a tool to help rethink or flip the classroom experience Members of the cohort will design small focused course components integrating the materials they have created or accessed The cohort will work together to examine such questions as How can we successfully integrate OERs into existing course structures How can faculty make the best use of class time freed up by moving selected components online What design and production considerations result in the most effective learning experiences for students We are particularly interested in focusing on alternatives to video such as audio content coupled with visual components Can we create efficiencies related to physical space production resources faculty time etc by incorporating OERs into our courses and curricula while maintaining an exceptional standard of student learning Theme D Technology Based Strategies for Integrating Writing Disciplinary Thinking This cohort will consider how departments and programs can use new technology to integrate writing instruction into the major As departments develop their Integrated Writing plans technology based strategies can help faculty balance the demands of teaching content and writing Participants will explore a range of tools and develop an online resource assignment or tool to deepen learning and connect writing to disciplinary thinking We encourage faculty to participate as teams so that their experience in this cohort can contribute to their departments work on Integrated Writing How can online resources help students develop as writers within and outside of courses How can technology facilitate peer review and faculty response Which aspects of writing instruction can be delivered outside of regular class meetings How can digital writing projects facilitate the development of and allow students to demonstrate disciplinary thinking Eligibility Funding Full time faculty tenure and non tenure line from all Georgetown campuses who are teaching a course in fall 2014 are eligible to apply to join a cohort Awardees will receive a 2 500 stipend for participation and limited materials funding may be available Grant Expectations Awardees will participate in their cohort from May 2014 to December 2014 During this eight month period they will attend hands on focused workshops during the Teaching Learning and Innovation Summer Institute TLISI held
