UAA Tech Fellows
Since 2005, the Faculty Technology Center has hosted the Technology Fellows program on a yearly basis. We welcome applications from all campuses in the UAA MAU. These exceptional faculty members are chosen from many applicants using a rigorous application process. Technology Fellows are expected to integrate technology to support teaching and learning. They also serve as mentors to colleagues interested in integrating technology into instruction.
- Expand faculty members’ existing skills in using innovative technology to design and enhance instruction
- Create a community of faculty leaders who will share with colleagues their knowledge, skills and effective use of instructional technology
New to 2013: "Moving Online", a 2-year program, and iTeach
A strong focus of this year’s intensive will be moving a course online. The 2013 Tech Fellows will be a 2 year program, with the 2nd year dedicated to mentoring the new cohort of tech fellows.
