Backpack Project

About the Project

The eLearning Backpack Project initiative provides faculty members with backpacks loaded with technological equipment that compliment the tools and resources available in Canopy, UC’s eLearning ecosystem. Backpackers are encouraged to reimagine how they create/deliver course content and engage with their students. The first and second cohorts of eLearning Backpackers included 10 and 26 faculty members, respectively.


What's Involved?

Each chosen backpacker will have options for consulting time with mentors from the first cohort of backpackers and consultants in the Center for Excellence in eLearning. There will also be opportunities to attend faculty development sessions and monthly community building meetings throughout the academic year.

For questions about the project or its application, please contact Mike Mitchum or Ben Hutchison, or take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions.
