On April 18 – 9am to 12pm, in Cremona 102, the Academic Innovation Task Force will host a morning workshop designed around developing proposals for teaching and learning initiatives which value the essentials of an education at SPU but also fold in elements of effectiveness and efficiency. The Task Force has developed a RFP regarding this project, which will be available after April 2, defining how SPU views innovation, effectiveness and efficiency while also providing ideas for innovation and a road map for a successful proposal.
The workshop will be an active learning space for people to share ideas, develop ideas, and gain feedback and insight on how to cultivate an idea into a successful proposal. We will be promoting teamwork and collaboration using traditional and web-based techniques and pedagogies. It will be an exciting time and the start of a promising venture at SPU. The program is open to full-time and part-time SPU faculty, as well as full-time SPU staff.
Here is the workshop description. We look forward to seeing you on April 18!
Interested in submitting a proposal for academic innovation but not sure how it should look, what needs to be part of it?
