Faculty Forum - May 20, 2022 - Preparing for the Summer Institute on Teaching and Technology (SITT)
From Margaret Merrill
Here is the exciting conversation of the Faculty Form from Friday, May 20th!
As you may have heard, the 2022 Summer Institute on Teaching and Technology (SITT) takes place on September 8 and 9, and will feature presentations, interviews, and conversations with UC Davis faculty with stories to tell about past and current innovations in teaching and teaching with technology. A number of faculty have already submitted their 100-word proposals, while many others are eager for feedback for their presentation ideas in progress. Other faculty presenters from past SITTs spoke about the process of applying, the eventual deliverables that they delivered, and the increased teaching confidence and sense of cross-disciplinary camaraderie they felt after participating in SITT.
Whether or not you plan to present at (or even attend) SITT 2022, we invite you to listen in on this conversation, gain wisdom from the faculty presenters and instructional designers in the room, and benefit from the encouragement provided by people who would love to see you, too, attend the Summer Institute this year. We hope that our theme of “Unmuting Our Students” will inspire you to reflect on your own thoughts on teaching classes that are student-centered, activity-driven, and full of helpful feedback for your students. We host SITT for faculty such as yourself, so we would love to include you as a presenter.
