This week I am one of several Olin professors helping out with the Olin Collaboratory Summer Institute. This year we have 55 participants, including faculty from universities around the country (like Oklahoma and Vermont) and the world (like Saudia Arabia, India, and Australia).
During the first half of the week, we lead workshops where participants learn tools for curriculum design. On Monday Mark Somerville and I lead a workshop on understanding students and designing courses and programs that serve their needs. Here’s a picture of me saying something apparently important:
During the second half of the week participants work on projects they choose, often redesigning a class or creating a new curriculum. More information about the Summer Institute is here.
