Refresh Your Course!

Become a Digital Pedagogy Fellow

Begins June 12, 2017

The Digital Pedagogy Fellows program is designed to assist all instructors of record in leveraging technology to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of learning in their courses.  

Not going to be on campus?  No problem.  

The program is a facilitated asynchronous digital learning experience consisting of 4 units that can be covered at your own pace within a 3-7 day period of time.  Approximately 4 hours of your time will be spent each day developing a course plan that uses technology to enhance information delivery, learner engagement, and/or assessment based on selected readings, short lecturettes, engaging with colleagues, and reflecting on the topics individually.  Total time commitment is 14-24 hours.

As a result of participation in this program you will be able to:

  • Determine your guiding learning theories for your teaching practice.
  • Define the roles you and learners will play in digital learning experiences in your course.
  • Use digital pedagogy to optimize cognition with particular emphasis on the areas of attention, memory, thinking and motivation.
  • Develop an effective digital learning experience using a design methodology as well as the resources and expertise available to assist you at UC, Berkeley.

The major topics are

  • The Nature of Knowledge in the 21st Century

  • The Impact of Technology on Attention, Memory, Thinking and Motivation

  • Designing the Digital Learning Experience

  • Deciding which Technology to Use

As a Digital Pedagogy Fellow you will receive continued support throughout the program to complete the planning and development of your course for the Fall.  Upon completion of your refreshed course plan you will receive a certificate indicating your status as having completed the Digital Pedagogy Fellows program.
