Web Camp: A Faculty Development Opportunity.
Braun, Connie L.
Winona State University's (Minnesota) Web Camp is an eight-day event that focuses on providing teaching faculty with opportunities to explore curricular enhancements through World Wide Web site creation, organization and display of information, consideration of new teaching strategies, and various means of electronic communication. Two purposes of Web Camps are to provide faculty with concentrated development time for a course Web site and to encourage the development of social connections among participants. Web Camps feature demonstrations and discussions on specific parts of software and hardware applications, incorporating technology into student curricular and co-curricular experiences, humanistic social activities, access to extensive electronic resources, informative/accurate Web sites, interesting/interactive multimedia, and easy navigation. Specific activities include: identifying instructional goals; determining appropriateness of specific technology to achieve academic goals; designing a good Web site; providing assistance with evaluation; enforcing the idea that technical and instructional support is available; working with digital cameras and scanners; experimenting with adding audio- and video-clips to Web pages; working with still and animated graphics; creating and using frames; developing forms; exploring online testing; gaining an understanding of copyright and campus Web policies; experimenting with discussion groups; other technologies, e.g., streaming media, NetMeeting, WebCompass; and "show and tell" sessions.
