New England Faculty Fusion Course

Maine Campus Compact, in partnership with Campus Compact for New Hampshire and Campus Compact for Southern New England, will lead a New England-wide initiative offering enhanced online teaching support as part of the Fusion Course program. The course and additional support will be offered free of charge for many faculty members in New England, based on availability.

The Fusion Course provides critical training and support for faculty as they adapt to online teaching and offers instruction for how to integrate community engagement methodologies into existing curricula to improve the quality of course delivery and foster student engagement. Through this faculty development course, faculty learn how to infuse community based-learning components into online courses to give students hands-on, real-world experiences that will strengthen learning, create connections to the larger community, and improve student retention rates.

Elements of the New England Fusion Project include:

  • A 2-3 week Fusion curriculum/course that trains faculty in incorporating community-engaged education into online courses with a special introductory welcome session .
  • A series of 5 thematic workshop webinars (1.5 hours each) focused on topics such as engaging students in online settings and how to integrate community partnerships into online classes.
  • Virtual drop-in office hours for faculty who need added support with engaged online teaching.
  • A cross campus peer-to-peer resource hub for New England campuses and faculty.

Courses include a hybrid of live sessions and outside coursework. We have three different course sessions coming up (check out our website for specifics on live sessions):

  • Option 1: October 27 - November 13, 2020
  • Option 2: December 1 - December 18, 2020
  • Option 3: January 4 - January 15, 2021
