(Teaching And Learning with Electronic Network Technologies)
University of Hawaii System
May 15--19 2000

UH-Information Technology Services (ITS) will be sponsoring a summer institute on issues and pedagogical strategies surrounding the design, creation, and delivery of Internet-supported course materials. The institute will be conducted on the Manoa campus, with limited housing available for neighbor island participants at the East West Center's Lincoln Hall.

Faculty will have an environment for the creation of course materials using the Internet and other multi-media and interactive technologies. WebCT will be highlighted as it is the course management tool supported by ITS. Workshop participants, working in collaboration with instructional design and technical staff, will share technical, instructional and disciplinary skills in the design and development of instructional materials. The workshop will be a mix of colloquia, in-depth hands-on workshops, and assisted lab times. It is expected that faculty will create materials to be used in their courses during the 2000--2001 academic year. Faculty will also be expected to participate in faculty development activities during that academic year. In order to provide maximum support for institute participants, only 30 faculty throughout the University of Hawaii system will be accepted.
