Summary

This project will work with innovative university faculty in Lviv, Ukraine, to modernize their science classrooms using digital technology. We will develop a training program to teach faculty how to use digital classroom tools, develop active-learning curricula, and evaluate the effectiveness of the modernization project on student learning. Successful approaches and tools will be distributed globally to partner communities working to transform their science teaching and learning.

Challenge

Teaching technology in the First World is experiencing a golden age, providing students with individualized tutoring, virtual reality, and project-based learning at massive scales. But the technology has yet to make its way to places where they would do the most benefit, such as in post-Soviet states. And even when it does arrive, institutional cultures can be barriers to widespread adoption. Without a modern educational system, students are less prepared to participate in modern economies.

Solution

This project will take a grassroots approach to effecting institutional change. By working with innovative faculty who are hungering for approaches and technologies that allow them to become more effective teachers, we will plant the seeds for future institutional transformations. Faculty will be trained in digital teaching technologies, receive guidance in how to adapt their lesson plans for the digital environment, and learn how to evaluate the effectiveness of what they've built.

Long-Term Impact

Institutional change needs to start small and local. By providing trend-setting faculty with the right tools and skills, we'll be able to empower them to do what they do best ... teach and inspire their students. Improved classrooms and student outcomes lead to increased prestige for the university and demands for higher quality teaching from all faculty. Successful tools and approaches trialed in Ukraine will be shared through Science Voices to other overlooked communities.
