Over the past academic year, MERIT embarked on a pilot program named "Teaching for Tomorrow", a series of workshops designed for SoE graduate students. The project aim: build a Community of Practice consisting of MERIT staff and SoE graduate students where we share knowledge, skills, challenges, resources and tools related to the integration of technology tools and strategies into teaching practice.
Workshop topics ranged from Digital Stories, Tools for Teaching Math & Science, Flipped Instruction, Using Social Media to Engage Students, Game Based Learning Tools and Strategies, and Teaching with Interactive Whiteboards. MERIT extends a special thanks to the group of C&I TAs who helped design and lead sessions; we thank you for helping guide deep learning and rich discussions.
Summer 2013, we plan to continue to post content on the Teaching for Tomorrow YouTube Channel, and continue to build our Online Learning Community - thanks to a partnership with Education, Outreach and Partnership.
To learn more, please contact Catherine Stephens. Please share your questions, suggestions for future topics, and continue to share your ideas about how we connect with and support Teaching Assistants and SoE graduate students.
