The Digital Integration Teaching Initiative (DITI) is now accepting new faculty partnerships for the Spring 2022 semester. Northeastern has committed to improving how we teach our undergraduates digital tools, skills, and methods that will enable them to be successful in today’s world. The DITI was established to help CSSH faculty to meet this goal. We collaborate with faculty across CSSH disciplines to help integrate digital methods and skills in a wide range of classes. This Call for Partnerships is your chance to enlist our help to enhance your course with digital skills.
We know that it might be difficult under the current circumstances to begin thinking about next semester, but in order to successfully plan for fall 2021 partnerships, we request that interested faculty partners:
- Fill out the DITI call for partnerships form by November 1, 2021: http://bit.ly/diti-CFPartnerships-SP22 . You do not need to know all the details of your course to fill out the survey.
- Meet with us for an initial consultation by December 17, 2021 to confirm basic information (course logistics, module objectives, and so on)
Once you fill out the intake form, we will contact you to schedule a consultation, where we will discuss the details of your course and develop a partnership plan. We will also send information on how you can reserve a day or days for the DITI team to visit your class(es). Weeks at the beginning and the middle of the semester are historically more popular for class visits and we allocate our visits on a first-come first-served basis. Therefore, if you are interested in those weeks, we recommend that you schedule a consultation with us and reserve the dates you are interested in as early as possible.
You can learn more about this program at the DITI website, where you will find information on how the initiative has progressed, view various sample courses, and read our faculty guidelines.
If you have questions at all, please contact Claire Tratnyek (tratnyek.c[at]northeastern[dot]edu), Assistant Director of the Digital Integration Teaching Initiative.
We hope to hear from you!
