We asked, you answered…! ETUG recently surveyed members about their Top 5 educational issues and trends in post secondary education (see: full report). The results inspired the theme of our Spring workshop to invite further reflection and sharing on the high-interest, high-importance topics for people, right now.
Here were your “high-5″:

  1. Academic Transformation: e.g., disruptive technologies, breakthrough teaching and learning models, innovative organizational and inter-institutional alliances, learning organization, design thinking
  2. Faculty Development: e.g., rewards, incentives for participation, sharing innovation/best practices, supporting course re-design, effective uses of learning technologies, models of support
  3. Online + Blended Teaching and Learning: e.g., student engagement, retention strategies, quality assurance, evaluation of impact, business models, innovative course models, strategy behind online/blended learning, MOOCs, etc
  4. Assessment of Learning: e.g., competency based learning, badging, micro-credentialing, measuring student outcomes, etc
  5. Evaluating Technology Based Instructional Innovation: e.g., analysis techniques, evaluation of project design, using results to change campus practices, tools and methods to collect data, rubrics and evaluation criteria, etc.

We invite you to join us at the ETUG Spring workshop at SFU Burnaby to share and celebrate the work, research, accomplishments and challenges under the themes from the “ETUG High-5″. Get ready as we gather once more to:

  • showcase lessons learned
  • display innovative approaches to teaching and learning
  • extend learning through inter-institutional and community collaborations
  • help each other to build sustainable practice
  • share in projects, plans and predictions for the future
