Hear from the 2016-2017 cohort:
"The program offered a rich opportunity to think through and implement new assignments in visual thinking and collaborative research. It also provided a welcome forum for critical approaches to digital and experimental pedagogy." - Kyle Parry (HAVC)
"Being part of the DIP gave me the extra push I needed to take a pedagogical risk and try something new in my classroom. (It) provided a safety net of support for both my students and me, giving us the confidence we needed to experiment. Working with a cohort allowed me to draw inspiration from my colleagues who were also thinking creatively and critically about combining digital literacy with unconventional ways of presenting ideas." - Amanda Smith (Literature)
"Constant support ... throughout the planning and implementation of the course meant that the entire class was liberated from worries over our tech prowess. Instead, we could focus on the new ways that the digital tools allowed us to engage with course content." -Dustin Wright (History)
"The assignment I developed in the (Digital Instruction) Project allowed students to apply writing and analytical skills into a new domain." - Philip Longo (Writing Program)
