The CSU Digital Ambassadors Program seeks to transform teaching and learning opportunities within the California State University (CSU) system through the increased use of emerging and online technologies. With particular attention to pre-service science and math teacher preparation at the undergraduate and credential level, CSU Digital Ambassadors are faculty leaders who champion the use of educational technologies within their respective campuses, engage faculty and educational stakeholders in the sharing of best practices and strategies for campus-specific and K-12 outreach initiatives, and function as a centralized resource for their academic and educational communities.
This article highlights the activities and events of the 2012-2013 Digital Ambassadors. The thirteen Digital Ambassadors who participated in the Faculty Learning Community (2012-2013) all worked within the field of STEM Education, holding a position in either a College of Science or Education at a CSU campus. Nine College of Education faculty members were experts in either mathematics education, science education, educational technology, or educational leadership. Four faculty members were from Colleges of Science and experts from mathematics, geological sciences, chemistry, or biology. The ambassadors represented 13 of 23 CSU campuses and were distributed across multiple regions of the state: San Francisco Bay Area, Central California, and Southern California.
The Digital Ambassador program provides a much-needed pathway with incentives and recognition for faculty who want to develop and coordinate targeted professional development opportunities based on the needs and expertise of their colleagues. On each CSU campus, the Digital Ambassadors designed and implemented customized activities and events for faculty and local educational stakeholders.
