Mobile Learning Cohort

Mobile Learning Cohort 2017-2018

The Center for Teaching & Learning invites Chaminade full-time faculty teaching at least one face-to-face course to apply for the Mobile Learning Cohort. The purpose of the program is to provide faculty with the resources needed to explore possible advantages of integrating mobile learning devices in and beyond the formal learning environment.

Faculty selected to participate in the Mobile Learning Cohort will receive their own approved mobile device or tool. The cost of the device or tool cannot exceed $500.* We are currently able to fund 12 devices, ideally for two faculty from each division.

If selected, each faculty member must commit to:

  • Collecting data on the impact of the device on their teaching and on student learning, and, Create either a SoTL manuscript based on the impact of your mobile learning project or an Electronic Learning Object (eLO) on how the mobile device was used (and allow the CTL to showcase those efforts on its website). The eLO can be a video or web-based resources that can be accessed by CUH faculty.

Preference will also be given to faculty who participate in a presentation of the device and how it was used to enhance learning in the class. Presentations must be conducted by September 30, 2018.

Applications are due by September 23, 2017. Distribution of mobile devices will follow after the award is made.
