Cohort 1 is using the months of March, April and May to carefully consider and document how they will integrate the technology-related pedagogical methods (which were selected during the Induction Phase) into their General Education Course. They are also pursuing additional training (including discipline-specific scholarly research), planning for the implementation of technology into their individualized pedagogy, and reflecting these changes in the development of their course content. Cohort 1 will begin utilizing these technology-related pedagogical methods within their General Eduacation Courses in Fall 2012.
Cohort 1 consists of instructors and professors from the School of Sciences and Mathematics:
Dr. LeAnn Davis, Dean of the School of Sciences and Mathematics and Associate Professor of Physical Science
James W. Barr, Instructor in Chemistry
Dr. Paul Fader, Associate Professor of Biology
Jamie Holtin, Instructor of Mathematics and Computer Science
Dr. Mike Johnson, Associate Professor of Mathematics
Dr. Rachel Stevens, Assistant Professor of Biology
Cohort 1 General Education Courses:
MAT 100 - Fundamental Concepts of Mathematics
MAT 101 - College Algebra
BIO 110 - Principles of Biology
CHE 121 - General Chemistry I
PHS 111 - Physical Science I
The Teaching and Learning Center has been completed and is ready for Cohort 1 and other faculty to utilize for additional training and recording of podcasts and videocasts to be used in their classes.
