iSALT: A Campus-Wide Support System to Evaluate Technology-Based Instructional Innovations

Tuesday, February 10 | 11:00AM–11:45AM | California Pavilion Promenade, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
The purpose of this presentation is to introduce a campus-wide support system called iSALT that we've created to promote evaluation research around technology and teaching innovations at Minnesota State University, Mankato. The system was successfully piloted in spring 2014 with eight participants who completed evaluations for their instructional innovations and disseminated their findings through at least five journal publications and/or conference presentations. We will discuss the steps we've gone through to develop iSALT and the strategies we've used to engage faculty participants. Additionally, we will present the evaluation projects completed by the iSALT participants and discuss their findings.

OUTCOMES: Develop a rationale for evaluating technology and instructional innovations * Identify the steps and strategies for developing a mechanism to support evaluation projects * Review the evaluation research projects at Minnesota State University, Mankato
