UA System Scholars Institute

UA System Scholars Institute The UA System Scholars Institute supports collaboration across the UA System and encourages a shared community of knowledge for implementing best practices into the use of technology in the teaching, learning, and research processes.

Since 2008, the UA System Scholars Institute has been hosted each year on a rotating basis by one of the UA System campuses. Scholars Institutes are open to faculty, staff, and administrators from all three campuses. The Scholars Institute supports collaboration among faculty and administration System-wide, and encourages a shared community of knowledge for implementing best practices into the use of technology in the teaching, learning, and research processes. The Institute is an important professional development initiative for faculty in their use of technology in teaching and learning, particularly in support of the adaptation and use of new approaches to teaching with technology. Further, the Institute focuses heavily on the sharing of best practices across our System-wide community. Presentations emphasize quality, evidence of impact, tools, and pedagogical and practical approaches, with time for colleagues within and among campuses to engage in collaboration and knowledge sharing. The Institute also provides hands-on opportunities for practice and implementation of classroom and online tools.
