Bluecorps Technology Teaching Proposal
The intent of this project is to support and coordinate broad scale action-based teaching transformations in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. Specifically, the plan is to develop the Bluecorps – a group of recent graduates who will be hired to provide guidance and support to faculty attempting to transform their classes, especially with technology. The Bluecorps members will also supplement existing support staff by providing course specific onsite, in-class support during the most critical points of a project, including initial pilot, student course evaluation and improvement cycles. It is envisioned that a group of eight to ten technology advisors, each working with ten to twelve faculty members each year, could reach as many as a third of the College’s tenure track teaching pool in three years.
