Camp IDEA (2011-2019)

What was Camp IDEA?


Camp IDEA - Innovative Digital Education & Assessment - was a one-week professional development workshop for faculty interested in incorporating more digital components in their face-to-face, blended or online classes. The goal of Camp IDEA was to develop or strengthen participants’ foundational understanding of pedagogy in support of learner-centered instruction in online environments. Led by a multi-disciplinary instructional team, Camp activities introduced participants to a multitude of technological tools and resources, while simultaneously examining the theory and best pedagogical practices of a variety of instruction situations.

Since its initial offering in May 2011, more than 120 faculty members participated in Camp IDEA!
