Congratulations to you all! We are excited to work with this new group of Tech Fellows-please help us welcome them to the community.
The Technology Fellows program was built to encourage and foster student achievement through the use of technology-engaged learning with faculty and staff at UAA. While the central purpose of the Technology Fellows program is on course redesign, each year we select a specific focus to encourage faculty to continually build and expand new skills, interests and abilities. In the two-year program, year one is educational and focused on course design/redesign in online environments. In year two, the fellows become mentors in the community.
The 2015 Tech Fellows cohort will focus on the use of Open Educational Resources (OER). OER are materials that once created remain in the public domain to be freely used without cost or restrictions. When used in education, OER materials can significantly reduce both the cost of education and amount of work required when designing a course.
