In Summer 2014, the Office of the Vice Provost for Advances in Learning is sponsoring a pilot program to enable full-time Harvard faculty to get hands-on assistance with some of the techniques and concepts used in HarvardX projects and university blended learning efforts. Called the Faculty Academy, this new pilot will be offered twice this summer: Thursday, July 24th & Tuesday, August 12th.
Harvard faculty are invited to sign up for a half day slot focused on one of three topics. There are six (6) total slots available each month, two per topic. Slots are available for individual faculty signup on a first-come, first-served basis, and we will maintain a wait list of two faculty per slot. Slots that have not been reserved by faculty one week prior to the date of the Academy will be made available to senior graduate students who are teaching in the following academic term.

HarvardX for Allston is a new educational initiative which brings HarvardX content and courses to the Allston-Brighton community and general public by offering programs that integrate the latest in virtual education technologies with opportunities for in-person interactions and discussion.
