Annual Faculty Technology Institute

Faculty Technology Institute 2021

May 17 - 21, 2021

Join us online at the annual Faculty Technology Institute to share experiences, reflect on lessons learned, and make plans for the return to fully in person teaching at LC in Fall 2021.

To accommodate social distancing, this year’s FTI will be primarily a virtual event with a limited on-campus presence. We are still finalizing the schedule which will include a selection of 30-minute and 1-hour workshops covering traditional FTI topics, a dedicated LMS track, and daily general session. Registration is required for attendance.

Stronger Than Before: Resilience and Joy in Post-Pandemic Teaching Flower Darby Flower Darby

The Covid-19 pandemic required us to teach in new formats, using technology (some familiar, some less so) in new ways to help our students learn. While at times challenging, and while we’re all looking forward to returning to in-person classes, our collective experience has shown that we’re willing and able to adapt our teaching methods to overcome such challenges. We’ll reflect on what we’ve learned in this season while exploring how the approaches we’ve gained only strengthen our practice, no matter what format we’re teaching in. And we’ll explore equitable and inclusive strategies that will enhance our ability to support all of our diverse students. You will leave with renewed energy, equipped with practical suggestions that support your joy and wellbeing as well as your students’ learning and success.

Flower Darby’s presentation will be Monday, May 17th at 11:40 AM.

If you have questions, contact Miranda Carney-Morris or another member of the Educational Technology Team. We hope you can join us!
