The collaborative initiative between UCITE and the Freedman Center offers faculty the opportunity to learn about the Freedman Center and incorporate that knowledge into their teaching. Faculty are invited to apply for a 4-week series of interactive workshops designed to empower them to incorporate CWRU’s digital tools and resources into their classroom experience.
Specifically, faculty will learn how to use text mining and data visualization tools to quickly identify trends or themes in large bodies of text; participate in activities that will develop their qualitative and quantitative analytical skills; and gain strategies for incorporating digital tools and resources into the classroom. Ultimately, faculty will become better-equipped to help their students navigate research tools necessary for success in a 21st century learning environment and knowledge-based economy.
This short-term series will start after fall break and conclude before finals, giving faculty a chance to integrate the newly learned concepts into their spring curriculum. The dates for this project are on Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on November 2, 9, 16, and 30.
The application window will open Wednesday, October 11 and close Friday, October 20.
