Spring 2018 Programming



This spring, we are offering a two-part workshop series to provide educators with solid grounding in, and potential applications of the SAIL framework, to engage our entire Northeastern community in this new learning and teaching ecosystem.

Part 1: Vision, Goals, and You

This workshop (Part 1 of a 2-part series) provides participants with a basic introduction to what SAIL is, including an overview of the framework, goals for learners, and the vision for a university-wide rollout.

Recommended for: Faculty, Graduate Students/Post-Docs, and Staff/Administrators who are new to SAIL

Part 2: Putting It into Action

This workshop (Part 2 of a 2-part series) provides participants with guidance on how to map learning opportunities (activities such as programs, events, research, service, employment, co-op, courses) to the SAIL framework in support of SAIL goals for learners. This includes identifying the level of engagement, level of exposure to the five dimensions, and relevant skills. Additionally, participants will receive support and guidance on entering and publishing learning opportunities through the SAIL Educator Web Portal.

Recommended for: Faculty, Graduate Students/Post-Docs, Staff/Administrators who have participated in Part 1 and/or have been introduced to SAIL

Full-Day Institutes 

This one-day retreat will introduce participants to the SAIL framework, support educators in creating their own SAIL learning opportunity, and build a SAIL community as participants brainstorm collaborative learning opportunities across roles or functional lines.  Participants will come away with two learning opportunities ready to input into the SAIL Educator Portal, as well as access to the SAIL mobile app for learners.  Breakfast and lunch will be served.

Recommended for: Faculty, Graduate Students/Post-Docs, Staff/Administrators who have are interested in diving deeper into applying SAIL in their own contexts, and drawing on the experiences of other participants
