GSC's continued efforts for academic quality includes faculty projects as well as new supports and tools for faculty. Stay tuned to this page as we continue to enhance academic quality for students at GSC as well as resources for faculty.
2016 ATI Institute
In 2011, the USNH Academic Technology Steering Committee founded the annual Academic Technology Institute (ATI) as a way to bring faculty together to explore and find solutions to how to integrate technology into their courses to transform their pedagogy and course design. Each of the 4 institutions (GSC, KSC, PSU, UNH) selects 10-15 faculty from diverse disciplines to participate in this four day event.
At the ATI, faculty explore the pedagogy and tools as well as new thinking around using technology in the classroom. In addition, faculty are given the opportunity to interact and work together with their colleagues across the institutions.
Earlier this spring, nine GSC faculty participated in the 6th Annual Academic Technology Institute (ATI) hosted at KSC. This year the ATI was held in conjunction with the recently launched USNH Open Education Initiative. Each faculty submitted a proposal for an Open Ed project to implement in one of their courses over the next few terms. Read more.
Did You Know?
Over 50 faculty members have been involved in two new assessment projects this year at GSC: one involved developing a set of shared outcomes for our undergraduate capstone courses and the other looking at learning outcomes in our general education courses. Results from the pilots for both of these projects will be available soon, but if you have questions or want to get involved, please contact Carina Self, Associate Dean for Academic Effectiveness (email@example.com) or Tamara VonGeorge, Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Save Time & Ensure Accuracy: The Syllabus Generator Pilot Project
Imagine a world where you can use your online course to update and export your syllabus easily. Sounds nice, right? You’re in luck: this world is in the works as we explore a pilot project to test what we're referring to as the GSC Syllabus Generator Project.
- Syllabus updates will be easier for faculty from term to term
- Automatic updates of GSC official language and policies
- Your online course serves as the fuel that drives the syllabus engine (e.g., the gradebook provides the Grading Percentages text for your syllabus)
- Course reports in Moodle will help you build and update the syllabus
- Did we mention that syllabus updates will be easier from term to term?
