Map and Directions

Faculty Summer Institute (FSI) is a 4-day conference for higher education instructors and other professionals. The majority of participants are from Illinois state universities, but educators for community colleges, private universities, and out-of-state universities are also encouraged to attend.

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 piece of technology or software. Each team then shares what they have learned in a "Five Minutes of Fame" presentation at the conclusion of the conference.

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--receptions, lunches, and dinners--in addition to the sessions and Learning Teams themselves. Attendees are also encouraged to spread the word virtually before, during, and after the conference via Twitter, Facebook, Ning, and any other social networking site. Please use the hash tag #fsi2010.
