UA System Scholars Institute
2013 SCHOLARS INSTITUTE
THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA IN HUNTSVILLE
May 21 & 22, 2013
Now in its sixth year, The UA System Scholars Institute is hosted each year on a rotating basis by one of our three universities and is open to faculty, staff and administration from all three campuses. This year the Institute was held
at The University of Alabama in Huntsville on May 21 & 22.
In 2014, the Institute will be held on the Tuscaloosa campus.
The Scholars Institute supports collaboration among faculty and administration system-wide, and encourages a shared community of knowledge for implementing best practices into the use of technology in the teaching, learning, and research processes. The Institute
is seen as an important professional development initiative for faculty in their use of technology in teaching and learning, particularly in support of the adaptation and use of new approaches to teaching with technology. Further, the Institute focuses heavily on the sharing
of best practices across our system-wide community. Presentations emphasize quality, evidence of impact, tools, and pedagogical and practical approaches, with time for colleagues within- and between campuses to engage in collaboration and knowledge sharing. The Institute also provides hands-on opportunities for practice and implementation of classroom and online tools.
This year, both an on-site as well as virtual attendee options were used to further broaden the reach beyond UA System members, allowing surrounding colleges and K-12 colleagues to attend.
