About the Conference

Faculty Summer Institute (FSI) is a 4-day conference for higher education instructors and other professionals. Participants come from Illinois state universities, community colleges, private institutions, and out-of-state universities.

FSI offers presentations, workshops, and hands-on training involving the latest technological advances in education. Participants may choose to exclusively follow one of three tracks, or attend any session in any track. They may also choose to participate in a Learning Team, in which a group of up to 15 people meet 3 times during the week to focus on one specific aspect of technology or software. Two new options this year are Discovery Labs and Headliner Workshops.

Networking is a main component and benefit of FSI. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences and unique teaching methods with others, both in person and virtually. There are many opportunities for face-to-face networking during the conference with receptions, lunches, dinners, and sessions. Attendees are also encouraged to spread the word virtually before, during, and after the conference via Twitter, Facebook, and any other social networking site(s). Please use the hash tag #fsi2011 as you communicate virtually.
