Fusion Project for New England
Maine Campus Compact, in partnership with Campus Compact for New Hampshire and Campus Compact for Southern New England, will lead a New England-wide initiative offering enhanced online teaching support as part of the Fusion Course.
The course will be offered free of charge to many faculty members in New England, based on availability.
Elements of the New England Fusion Project include:
- A two-week Fusion curriculum/course that trains faculty in incorporating community-engaged education into online courses
- A series of 5 thematic workshop webinars (1.5 hours each) focused on topics such as engaging students in online settings and how to integrate community partnerships into online classes.
- Virtual drop-in office hours for faculty who need added support with engaged online teaching.
- A cross campus peer-to-peer resource hub for New England campuses and faculty.
How to participate:
If you are a faculty member in New England and would like to sign up for this free version of the Fusion Course, please register here. Be sure to include your institution name and New England work address to gain access to the special rate.
For many New England faculty, the course fee will be waived thanks to the generosity of the Davis Educational Foundation. Because we are eager to provide a large number of faculty across New England access to the course, we may need to limit the number of slots per state and per institution; access to the free program slots may need to be limited depending upon demand. Once you submit the completed form, we will review your registration and reply to let you know if/when you have secured a slot for participation in the New England program. In the event of high demand, priority will go to Campus Compact members.
If the courses fill up, you may sign up for our waiting list to be notified if space opens up.
This course and initiative is supported by the Davis Educational Foundation established by Stanton and Elisabeth Davis after Mr. Davis' retirement as chairman of Shaw's Supermarkets, Inc.
