Tech-integrated Learning Environments: Promoting Student-centered Learning

Conference Archive

Learning Solutions Conference & Expo 2012 - March 23, 2012

Katie Jacobson

Manager of Instructional Technology
Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU)

PLNU is a private non-profit university with a traditional approach to teaching and learning. On this faculty-governed campus there was resistance and skepticism regarding online or hybrid courses – faculty felt classes in these types of formats would necessarily lack rigor and quality.

Participants in this case-study session will learn how PLNU implemented a faculty-development program called Technology Integrated Learning Environments (TILE) to help faculty understand what it means to bring instruction into an “online” environment. They offered a six-week faculty development program in a hybrid format to help faculty transition from lecture-based strategies to technology-rich and student-centered pedagogies that make use of online learning environments while maintaining a strong sense of community. This unique faculty-development opportunity focused on using technology to support learning outcomes and provided a high level of engagement for students. You will learn about delivery mechanisms, development timelines, deliverables, and lessons learned.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The key elements of the TILE program that contributed to its success
  • How to design a similar faculty development program as relevant to your university
  • The steps for implementing a program like TILE at your own university.

Audience: Novice participants should be familiar with a “university culture” and understand the unique problems that come with helping faculty develop themselves as teachers.
