LSA Faculty: Do you want help utilizing new technology and pedagogy in the classroom? Get a BlueCorps Advisor!
Aug 23, 2013
LSA faculty may apply for a BlueCorps Advisor to help create technology-based resources, plan for and assist in implementing new technology or a new pedagogical approach, and help the faculty develop technological expertise in the context of action-based courses. Recent LSA graduates, BlueCorps Advisors, work one-on-one with a small number of faculty members, providing direct assistance in the creation and implementation of new teaching materials/approaches.
BlueCorps Advisors can assist LSA faculty with:
- Using CTools more effectively
- Sympodium/ interactive pens
- LectureCapture: Blue Review
- Presentation software
- Improving note-taking strategies
- Lecture tools
- Video clips
- Online Office Hours/ Hangouts
- CrowdSourcing information in courses with Piazza
- Engaging students in large lecture courses
- Document cameras
BlueCorps Advisors will supplement existing support staff by providing course specific on-site, in-class support during the most critical –and often the most challenging—points of a project, including initial pilot, student course evaluation, and improvement cycles.
