Call for Participants
Flipped, Hybrid, Online Institute (Fall 2014)
Deadline to apply is August 15, 2014

The CSULA Center for Effective Teaching and Learning (CETL) is sponsoring a Faculty Institute September 8-11, 2014 to assist those interested in course redesign, moving from a traditional format to a technology-enhanced, flipped, and/or hybrid format. This four-day event is for faculty open to new discovery in their own teaching and learning and who are willing and able to learn new technology tools. Faculty need not have extensive knowledge or experience of educational technology to apply, however all applicants should have basic experience using Moodle for their courses. This is a great opportunity for people who are interested in converting to flipped, blended/hybrid models for Semester Conversion (Q2S).

Participants will learn best practices and models to re-conceptualize a current course that they teach. To ensure quality, courses will incorporate online teaching best practices and the Quality in Online Learning and Teaching (QOLT) Rubric.

There are a limited number of seats in this Institute. Participants must be willing to redesign a course that they will teach Fall 2014, Winter 2015, or Spring 2015. Participants must be available for all four days of the Institute (September 8-11, 2014 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm each day). Participants who redesign a Fall 2014 course will be encouraged to submit to the CSU QOLT program.

A Learning Material Grant of $250 will be awarded to each institute member and will be disbursed after attending the four-day institute in September. Payment is contingent on participation in all scheduled Institute activities, including a self-review of their course content using the QOLT Rubric. Institute facilitators will provide all reading and curricular materials.

Facilitators: Dr. Beverly Bondad-Brown, Associate Director of Educational Technology at the CETL, and CETL Director Catherine Haras.

FLC Expectations
Meeting attendance is mandatory for the entire four-day Institute. At the conclusion of the Institute, participants have one deliverable: self-review of the redesigned course using the QOLT Rubric. More information can be found on CETL's Online Institutes.
