In each issue, you'll find short features on faculty innovators, with accompanying leadership and staff insights, plus some upcoming events and lighthearted fare. We'll bring in perspectives from across IU, and contributions from people outside tech.
Our Fall 2019 issue is dedicated to active learning and community building. Inspired by a special issue of the Journal of Teaching and Learning with Technology, it features two professors who contributed JoTLT case studies on the use of tech in physical learning spaces: Gina Gibau and Andy Buchenot, both Mosaic faculty fellows.
Our staff insights include "Food for thought" from Mosaic's Tracey Birdwell about key active learning influences and influencers. To layer in a few more practical takeaways, we also made sure to include icebreakers to help your students feel more comfortable and connected (be sure to check out both the "How to tech" and "On the lighter side" columns).
In addition to the newsletter columns, we'll incorporate links to recent news, key websites, and upcoming events. At the end of the day, we want you to come away from each issue feeling like you're in the know – in other words like you're the connected professor.
