We offer a selection of deep engagement experiences during our academic year for educators, academics, and thought leaders. These programs offer an in-depth way to experience Olin's culture, learn from Olin educators and jumpstart change at our own institution. Check out our selection of upcoming workshops, or reach out to us about designing a custom workshop for your faculty. Visit us at Olin, or have Olin faculty visit your campus.
PERSPECTIVES ON STUDENT-CENTERED TEACHING & LEARNING
Join us for a peek inside the unique curriculum creation and delivery process at Olin College in this series of developmental sessions based on some of our signature courses. In this series of 90-minute virtual sessions, educators will experience the Olin approach to creating a course that puts students at the center of their learning experience. Each session features Olin faculty who will share their design process, project-based class activities, and the pedagogies used in Olin courses.
Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences
Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences is a weeklong interactive workshop for faculty teams engaged in a curricular change effort at their own institution.
Through participatory workshops, immersive design exercises, and presentations from experts, teams of faculty, staff and students learn about, experience, and practice effective, engaging teaching approaches for new and meaningful curricula.
The 2021 Olin College Summer Institute will take place in a virtual format June 7 - 11, 2021.
More Workshops & Events
The Senior Capstone Program in Engineering (SCOPE) invites you to join us virtually on May 12 as SCOPE teams give brief presentations of the results of their year-long projects sponsored by corporations, government research centers and private foundations.
Brief, three-minute project snapshot presentations will be followed by more in-depth and interactive breakout sessions. Breakout sessions will repeat so that attendees will have the opportunity to choose four different teams to engage with.
WHO SHOULD COME?
Current sponsors, interested companies and organizations, educators, community members and all those interested in igniting engineering education!
