Every Spring after Spring Semester closes, faculty gather for a three day session on current and best classroom and online practices. Two years ago, the topic was Teaching Naked. Last year the topic was Keys to Learner Centered Teaching. Stick around to see what this year’s topic will be!

Faculty receive a stipend for attendance and are paid to create modules and projects. Faculty members are nominated and/or apply to attend. This year we will be trying something new with sessions for those who have attended the academy before and those who have not. One attendee is selected to attend the MN eLearning Summit in July in St. Paul, MN, funded by Avnet and myeFolio. Watch for details in the Spring!
