Summer Academy 2017

2016-17 Summer Academy Showcase

Summer Academy Presentation

The offices of eLearning and Scholarly Technology and Resources (STaR) hosted the annual Summer Academy Faculty Showcase on April 7, 2017.

Dr. Rebecca Martindale Leighton, Assistant Professor of Instructional Technology at Texas A&M University – Texarkana, who served as the coordinator for the 2016 Summer Academy for Online Teaching Excellence, returned to assist in the

facilitation of the event where faculty presented innovative techniques incorporated into their online and hybrid courses.

Each summer, online instructors or those considering online course development are invited to spend two weeks on campus with STaR Instructional Designers to complete informative exercises and learn best practices for online course design and online pedagogy. During the fall, the group meets again to discuss milestones and challenges, and to plan for spring presentations showcasing their innovative online courses.

The Summer Academy Showcase was an amazing success. Presenters shared their insights, challenges, and creative solutions for developing engaging online learning experiences.
