Members of LACOL are currently exploring ideas for a matchmaking service. The goal is to create a framework (directory and forum) that will help our faculty and staff connect based on their common interests in experimenting with new online pedagogies.
LACOL offers a framework to support collaboration, including funding opportunities for selected multi-campus projects. As new ideas come forward, this framework is designed to facilitate multi-campus partnerships between faculty, librarians and technologist who are interested in experimenting together with new pedagogies and online learning tools and techniques.
LACOL is developing plans for a series of “Experimental Pedagogy Workshops” to promote experiential teaching and learning of new pedagogies for the liberal arts. The workshop format will invite faculty to lead the audience through the class experience of the new approach or technique.
