FACT2 Symposium
The SUNY Faculty Advisory Council on Teaching and Technology (FACT2) offerrf a one-day Symposium on Micro-Credentials - Friday, November 3, 2017, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm at SUNY Empire State College in Saratoga Springs.

The concept of the credential is a transnational, interdisciplinary signal of capability and skill.  Micro-Credentials are competency-based and show proof of specific learning achievements.  Across SUNY's 64 campuses there are examples of institutions developing and implementing both credit and noncredit micro-credentials that respond to student and industry demands.  This Symposium, organized by the FACT2 Task Force on Micro-Credentials, is designed to provide information to participants on why you might consider adopting a micro-credential program, and how you may do so effectively. 

Topics include:
Micro-Credential Basics
Micro-Credentials at Work within SUNY
Lunch - Networking with FACT2 Task Group members
Lessons Learned and Obstacles to Overcome in Badging
Credit vs. Non Credit Micro-Credentials
Micro-Credential Curriculum Assessment
FACT2 Task Group on Micro-Credentials Tasks, Deliverables & Timelines

Conference on Instruction and Technology (CIT) 2018
Elevate Learning: Taking Education Higher
SUNY Cortland
May 22 - 25, 2018
This year’s theme Elevate Learning: Taking Education Higher  is supported by the following tracks:
Immersive Learning - Today’s learning can happen anyplace and at any time. Tomorrow's learners will have additional tools to engage with content. How are we leveraging immersive tools, such as augmented reality, virtual reality, experiential learning, project-based learning, or other environments outside of the traditional classroom? Share your experiences with implementing any immersive learning technologies or techniques.
Designing for the Future – What are the latest trends, apps, and gear for engaging learners? How do you design for the future of education? What drives your decisions about teaching the learners of tomorrow?
Sustainable Innovation - How do we scale and transfer our evidence-based successes? How do we build upon the success of innovative instructional initiatives (such as IITG, OER or COIL projects)? Share how your innovations impacted learning, student engagement, student enrollment, or recruitment and retention efforts at your campus.
Leveraging Evidence – How are we using evidence to influence decisions that improve learning? How is your campus effectively using data, competency-based learning, micro credentialing, or evidence-based practices to guide decisions about courses, programs, delivery methods, or the student experience?
Opening Doors – How is your campus opening doors to include all learners? How are you welcoming international, adult, first-generation learners, and Excelsior Scholarship recipients? How are you engaging with OERs and Universal Design for learning practices? What opportunities lie ahead and what challenges remain?
Proposals for presentations were due December 31st, 2017, and are currently under review. Registration to open later this spring.
