Faculty chosen for inaugural Innovate symposia

Four faculty from the College of Education were selected through a highly competitive process to participate in the inaugural Innovate@ symposia to be held at UMass Amherst this summer. They are: Catherine Dimmitt, Department of Student Development; and Torrey Trust, Claire Hamilton, and Sally Galman, all of the Department of Teacher Education & Curriculum Studies.

The instructional innovation symposia are designed to provide faculty with “hands-on” training in latest instructional technologies while building a community of scholars who will contribute to a campus innovation think tank throughout the academic year and beyond. This program also directly advances the IT Strategic Plan through innovation by giving faculty increased access to technologies in the classroom that allow for innovative teaching and active learning, and by helping faculty have more of a voice in technology-related decisions. Faculty applied to participate in the symposia through a competitive process, and there was a tremendous response campus-wide with only 30 places available for the summer sessions.
