  • Assessing learning
  • Blackboard course management software features
  • Educational technologies for engaging students

Continuing in the fall semester, participants will further develop their teaching skills by participating in a Mid-semester Interview about Teaching (MIT) or peer classroom observation, and attending one group meeting.  Upon completion of the semester, faculty will be asked to submit a brief written reflection/evaluation of their experience. 

The institute is limited to 30 participants; faculty are eligible to earn a digital badge associated with the Institute.  Continental breakfast and lunch provided.  Please register on our website by Tuesday, August 14th.  For answers to your questions, please contact the Pew FTLC at 616-331-3498 or at ftlc@gvsu.edu.
