The Teaching with Technology (TwT) Workshop is an annual program that guides faculty and instructors through instructional design models to thoughtfully integrate digital tools, content, and pedagogies in engaging learning experiences. This year’s workshop will focus specifically on courses that are entirely online or are “flipped” with some online content or activities to help students prepare for and maximize the in-class experience.

Teach with Technology - VR technology

2019-2020 Workshop

Dates and application information for next year's program will be posted soon.

What You Will Learn

During the TwT Workshop, you will integrate technology and pedagogy to design engaging online or flipped learning experiences for your own courses.

  • Learn how to thoughtfully integrate pedagogy and digital learning modalities
  • Discuss examples of educators using online and flipped learning environments in innovative ways
  • Access professional support and resources to develop digital media and other learning content

Our team is here to answer your questions on pedagogy, online course platforms, and digital learning tools.

After participating in the TwT Workshop, you will be able to:

  • Apply models of technology and pedagogy integration to the design of an engaging online or flipped learning module
  • Design, develop, implement, and evaluate an online learning module for use in an online or flipped course
  • Share the online learning module, its implementation, and its strengths and challenges with fellow participants and the Stanford community

    Who Should Apply

    The TwT Workshop is open to Stanford faculty, instructors,  graduate student co-teachers, and staff who manage education or learning platforms within their department or center, with faculty sponsorship.

    We encourage both individual educators and teaching teams to apply.

    The program is particularly beneficial for early-career faculty and instructors who are teaching in the current academic year.

    What You Will Need:

    • A course or specific learning module for which you would like to develop an online learning environment.
    • Your department chair to complete a brief support form (link provided in the application).

    We will accept up to 15 projects into the program each year.

    Time Commitment

    You should expect to:

    • Spend approximately 20 hours before, during, and after the in-person workshop to design, develop, implement, and evaluate your project
    • Participate in one group lunch meeting per winter and spring quarters, during which participants will share ideas and their progress
    • Share the results of your project in a form that can be disseminated to the larger Stanford community
    • Collaborate with VPTL staff on your project and receive modest professional resources to develop digital media and other learning content

    Modest discretionary funds are available in recognition of the significant time investment of this program. Participants who complete the entire TwT Workshop will be given $1250 in discretionary funding upon completion of the program to recognize their efforts and support the continued development of their projects. Teaching teams that include a graduate student co-teacher or co-designer can receive an additional $250 in the form of a stipend to be awarded to this student upon completion of the program.

    Participant Feedback

    “I am very pleased and my participation in the workshop will have very direct effects on my courses going forward. Thanks!”

    “The initial workshop and Office Hours because I learned so much about the capabilities of the platforms at Stanford. The discussions with and on-going support from the VPTL staff are also very important.”

    “I learned a lot about what is available and got many ideas for how to build and use my online course materials.”
