The Digital Excellence Commitment (DExC) has expanded beyond MacBooks and iPads to technological skill-building through the new Digital Agility Program. Student and faculty feedback on the DExC from last academic year inspired the establishment of the Digital Agility Program.
Committee aids faculty in reflecting on the efficacy of digital excellence initiative despite low engagement
Interested in discussing how the iPads and MacBooks provided by the College’s Digital Excellence Commitment (DExC) have influenced teaching and learning in Bowdoin’s classrooms? Apparently, most Bowdoin faculty aren’t. On Monday, the Committee on Teaching and Classroom Practice (CoTCP) hosted a space for faculty to express their thoughts on certain DExC technologies that have become integrated into the classroom.
William Farley Fieldhouse was repurposed on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday as students received their new College-provided MacBooks, iPads and Apple Pencils and set them up with the help of Bowdoin Information Technology (IT) department staff. This day was years in the making.
