Almost three years ago, Georgetown University announced its commitment to technology-based innovation through the Initiative on Technology-Enhanced Learning (ITEL). After a highly competitive call for proposals, we are delighted to announce the recipients of the latest ITEL awards. We offer our congratulations to the following awardees and look forward to seeing their projects take shape over the coming year.
Projects that experiment with technologies and pedagogical designs to improve teaching and student learning at the course or curricular level.
Projects to develop and implement a massive open online course (MOOC) under Georgetown’s partnership with edX, an initiative under GeorgetownX.
Projects expected to develop proof of concept and pilot on a smaller scale.
This cohort will explore how Georgetown faculty can incorporate flexible online spaces into their course utilizing the Domain of One's Own toolset.
This cohort will provide faculty with opportunities to create virtual 'conversations' with students through interactive learning modules. CNDLS has also developed a platform for creating and editing a simple type of game, which will provide cohort members another option for exploration.
This cohort will engage in richly interdisciplinary conversations and explore new modes of teaching and curricular structures that more deeply and effectively immerse students in interdisciplinarity, creative and critical approaches to complex problems, and opportunities to bridge theory and practice.
This cohort was proposed and launched by a group of four applicants interested in integrating themes and problems of design into undergraduate writing courses, including committed iteration as a writing process, authentic feedback, collaborative community building, and an approach that begins with end users.
Once again, congratulations to this round's ITEL awardees. We look forward to the development and implementation of these innovative and imaginative projects.
Executive Director, CNDLS
