The CSU Digital Learning Ambassador Program (Ambassador Program) seeks to transform teaching and learning frameworks within the California State University (CSU) system through online technologies, with particular attention to teacher preparation.


 Events

Technology Showcases

The Technology Showcase will give faculty the opportunity to highlight the innovative practices they are using in their teaching.

  • The first Technology Showcase was held on April 12th at 12:00 in Broome Library. Faculty from the School of Education shared innovative technologies they are using to improve student learning. Based on the innovations shared faculty decided to learn more about: Prezi, Glogster and Google Moderator. Workshops will be held in the Fall 2012 semester about using these tools.

Tech Infusion Challenge

The Tech Infusion Project is a competition for students to design a lesson that infuses technology in teaching. Each participant will choose a University class session to redesign using innovative technologies.

  • A pilot round of the Tech Infusion Challenge was help with the MSTI Learning Assistant program in Math and Science during the spring 2012 semester.

  • Results of this program can be found on YouTube

 CSU Digital Caucuses

The first Digital Caucus was held on Google+ Hangouts OnAir. The caucus was focused on the impact of Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on the role of the professor in the CSU system. We used a site to share resources about MOOCs then held our conversation live on May 24th, the video and Scoop It site are below.

Funded in part by a gift from Google's Education Research Unit, this pilot program aims to equip pre-service teachers with a better command of the free, technology tools available for educators, and strengthen the exchange of best practices among CSU faculty educators in the disciplines of Math, Science, and Education.
