Invite for iClicker Faculty Learning Community Proposals

By: Shad Jessen   Published 11:26 am / August 22, 2017

Learning Technology Solutions (LTS) invites proposals from Boise State instructors interested in exploring, increasing knowledge and understanding, and sharing ideas about effective methods or approaches to teaching using iClicker by participating in a Faculty Learning Community (FLC).

Faculty participants will work as a cohort to explore the use of iClicker and implement principles of active learning.

Activities

Cohort meetings/hands-on learning sessions will occur once per month September-December 2017 (specific dates and times will be announced based availability of faculty).

Meetings are about 90 minutes per session, and participants will explore different ways iClicker may be used to meet course learning objectives and enrich learning through reflection. All meetings will be facilitated by LTS Instructional Technologists.

Hands-on learning sessions are custom-designed according to participants’ expressed needs, and will take place in Riverfront Hall (or other locations per mutual agreement). Participants must be able to attend all meetings in person.

The cohort will work together to produce a culminating presentation to peers about using clickers.

Application

All Boise State instructors are eligible to apply to participate, including adjunct faculty, lecturers, and tenure-track faculty.

Each FLS participant will receive a stipend of $300, paid as supplementary salary.

To apply, complete the application form and submit no later than 5 Friday, Aug. 31.

Selection Criteria

A limited number of faculty will be selected to participate in the Faculty Learning Community. Applications will be reviewed and selection determined according to:

  • Specificity of a plan for continuing or incorporating iClicker in the classroom
  • Immediacy of implementing the plan
  • Number of students impacted
  • Applicant’s commitment to attend monthly cohort meetings and hands-on sessions

This program is supported and funded by Learning Technology Solutions in the Office of Information Technology.
