In the 2018-19 academic year, the Office of the Provost is made available Digital Fellowships to full-time and adjunct faculty. The goal of the program was to research and apply mobile technology through the use of iPads® and digital resources to improve student learning outcomes, student persistence and completion.
Digital fellows conducted research and were trained in the use of iPads in the classroom. iPads were provided.
The fellows then assessed the impact of the digital intervention upon student learning in at least one of the Texas core objectives:
- critical thinking
- quantitative reasoning
- personal responsibility
- social responsibility
The assessments utilized a common rubric design based on the VALUE rubrics of the American Association of Colleges and Universities. (http://www.aacu.org/value/rubrics)
