Applications open for USNH Academic Technology Institute 2018

January 31, 2018

by Dan Carchidi

Each year, 10 faculty from each of these USNH institutions (GSC, KSC, PSU) and 15 faculty from UNH are selected to attend the USNH Academic Technology Institute (ATI).  This year ATI will be held at the University of New Hampshire – Durham, May 30-31, 2018.  The theme of the Institute is USNH Open Education: Pedagogy, Technology, and Advocacy.  Faculty who are selected to attend will engage in foundational and elective workshops infusing Open Educational Resources (OER), Open Pedagogy/Open Educational Practices, and Open Access Publishing with pedagogical techniques and technology tools.  Sessions will also focus on advocacy approaches to advance awareness and adoption of Open Education within USNH and beyond.
 
In addition to attending ATI, faculty who are selected will be expected to complete a proposal and project focused on one or more of the Open Education focus areas: Open Educational Resources (OER), Open Pedagogy/Open Educational Practices or Open Access Publishing during the next academic year.  Faculty will also be expected to participate in an assessment of their project and use their role as an ambassador to advocate on behalf of “open” on or beyond their campus.  Each “Open Education Ambassador” receives a $2000 stipend.
 
ATI Alumni often point to a renewed sense of enthusiasm for what is possible in a 21st Century teaching environment and valuable new connections to colleagues across the University System as valuable outcomes of the Institute.
 
To apply for ATI, UNH faculty should complete the online application (https://usnh.ati2018) before March 15.  For ATI 2018, we are seeking faculty who have a strong interest in Open Education and are committed to having a significant, positive impact on student learning outcomes while also driving down the cost of student course materials.  Learn more about Open Education at UNH - https://www.unh.edu/it/oer
