Learning Center Courses

Learning Center Courses

An exciting feature of CIT is the Learning Center, where participants attend special three-hour or full-day courses, each of which is expected to deliver a body of practical knowledge and applications. Learning Center Courses augment the conference program by providing in-depth exposure to specific topics in each of the seven conference tracks and linking participants with a community of learners who share common interests. Registrants receive continuing education units (CEUs) for completing Learning Center Courses. The selection of these courses is very competitive and is based on course content, thoroughness of the proposed course design, and the expertise of the presenter(s).

Register Now21st Century Hybrid Faculty Development: Introducing the TLT-USF Model
During this course, participants learn about a new hybrid model for 21st century faculty development appropriate for two- and four-year institutions. The session will particularly benefit faculty developers, technology developers and trainers, and administrators looking for new professional development models. The TLT-USF Model was collaboratively developed by the University of South Florida’s Center for 21st Century Teaching Excellence (C21TE) and the Teaching, Learning and Technology (TLT) Group. This distinctive ongoing faculty development program combines a variety of technological, pedagogical, and community-building strategies with a dynamic sequence of faculty implementation steps. Phase One began with the careful selection of a faculty cohort, each of whom fit the profile of a “compassionate pioneer:” Phase Two involves monthly follow-up sessions in which cohort members are asked to implement at least one technology-enhanced teaching strategy with their students. During Phase Three, participants share what they had learned during Phases One and Two with departmental colleagues. Phase Four involves members of the cohort collaboratively facilitating with TLT and C21TE colleagues during an IT Institute.

, The TLT Group, MD; William Patterson, Associate Director, Center for 21st Century Teaching Excellence, University of South Florida, FL
NOTE:

Register NowSecond Annual Summit for Education Web Professionals
Working within the community college environment creates distinct challenges. Community college web professionals have to create great-looking, accessible, performance-based websites; maximize staff productivity; convince variously skilled web designers and developers to use consistent interfaces and tools; and keep up with rapidly changing design and technology methods and techniques, all on a limited budget. The World Organization of Webmasters has designed a summit event specifically to address the many issues faced by community college web professionals. This exceptional experience allows participants to network; learn about the latest web technologies, techniques, and best practices; and attend networking sessions, all within a supportive peer environment. Whether you are a webmaster or an instructor of web development courses at a community college, this annual event is for you.

Register NowDeveloping Cost-Effective Learning Objects Computer Lab Class
We have all heard stories of high development costs for multimedia. Brevard Community College (BCC), like many community colleges, does not have the budget to support the development or purchase of costly reusable learning objects. Consequently, BCC, in partnership with the Florida Distance Learning Consortium, has developed a process for creating reusable learning objects in a cost-effective manner. Through the use of a standard template, faculty can create sophisticated reusable multimedia learning objects. Using web-based classrooms and a hands-on approach, the presenters demonstrate how reusable learning objects are developed and used.

Register NowFinding Our Way in the Dark: Effective Online Faculty Development
All too often it is assumed that if faculty know how to teach face to face, they will naturally know how to teach online. However, faculty new to the online environment often express anxiety about the effectiveness of their work and feel as if they are finding their way in the dark without much guidance. The focus of this course is to discuss the needs of faculty who are transferring their skills to the online environment and to present and discuss viable best practices for online faculty development that enable faculty to make a smooth transition to the online environment. Course participants explore the needs of faculty who are teaching online for the first time, techniques and ideas that help faculty gain the confidence and skill needed for online instruction, and best practices for faculty development that translate into best practices in online teaching.

Register NowKnowledge Management in Practice: A Roadmap for Action
Knowledge management (KM) provides a framework for developing strategies to collect and share what people know and then to apply this knowledge to action. This course focuses on using KM within higher education institutions as a way to improve the use of data and information for better decision making. As such, the intended audience includes higher education information technology executives, senior-level administrators, and faculty involved in campus-based decision making. Course participants learn how to better assess their organization’s KM capabilities, as well as develop an understanding of what KM is and how it can be used to then address their own processes and policies that support knowledge sharing within their own organizations. Following this course, participants will be able to apply practices and techniques that will allow them to identify challenges and opportunities at the institutional level and to develop action plans to move these ideas forward.
