St. Norbert College’s Full Spectrum Pedagogy framework was introduced at the Blended Learning conference in 2016 with a specific alignment to learning spaces. This year we would like to present an updated and expanded iteration of the framework that incorporates levels of student engagement.

The framework was developed through St. Norbert College’s Digital Learning Initiative. The Digital Learning Initiative strives to engage the St. Norbert community in dialog around the creation of a vision of higher education that at once incorporates the best elements of traditional teaching and innovations that incorporate new and emerging technologies; what we have termed Full Spectrum Pedagogy (FSP).

The FSP framework is designed to help faculty conceptualize a range of pedagogical possibilities, situate their current and projected practice on that range, and act as a guide for critical inquiry into how they might use technology to enhance student engagement and learning. The FSP model advocates for a strategy where we recognize that there are many different meaningful, effective, significant, and impactful ways to learn and that the college experience should necessarily involve a range of pedagogical experiences. The value of the framework is that it helps the college to conceptualize excellent teaching along a spectrum that can serve as a catalyst for systemic change.

The evolving framework is helping the college to envision a new and comprehensive ways to think about student learning. In addition to presenting on the current iteration of the framework we will also present some of our planned next steps including: employing FSP and high impact practices to provide opportunities for students to develop digital citizenship as demonstrated through the Bryn Mawr Digital Competencies Framework.
