Now in its ninth year, The University of Alabama (UA) System Scholars Institute is hosted each year on a rotating basis by one of the UA System campuses.

Scholars Institutes are open to faculty, staff, and administration attendees from all three UA System campuses. The Scholars Institute supports collaboration among faculty and administration system-wide, and encourages a shared community of knowledge for implementing best practices in the use of technology in the teaching, learning, and research environments.

The Institute is seen as an important professional development initiative for faculty in their use of technology in teaching and learning, particularly in support of the adaptation and use of new approaches to teaching with technology. Further, the Institute focuses heavily on the sharing of best practices across our system-wide community. Presentations emphasize quality, evidence of impact, tools, and pedagogical and practical approaches, with time for colleagues within- and between campuses to engage in collaboration and knowledge sharing. The Institute also provides hands-on opportunities for practice and implementation of classroom and online tools.

The 2016 Scholars Institute which will take place on Tuesday, May 17, and Wednesday May 18, and will be hosted by UAH. Registration and the Call for Proposals are both open, and faculty are encouraged to register early to reserve their seat.
