#DigPINS is Coming Back to St. Norbert College this January and we are partnering with Kenyon and Davidson Colleges

What is #DigPINS?

#DigPINS is an online faculty and staff development experience. It is a learning community where participants engage with, talk about, and collaborate on ideas of Digital Pedagogy, Identity, Networks, and Scholarship. The experience has been run at St. Norbert College (SNC) for several years and there is an established, lightly active, online community.

What is the FSL Stipend?

Participation in #DigPINS is free and open for anyone at St. Norbert College. The Full Spectrum Learning (FSL) Stipend is an incentive program to encourage elevated teaching practices across the college. The stipend has two parts and #DigPINS is a requirement for the first part: Explore. You do not need to be an FSL awardee to participate in #DigPINS but all faculty and staff are elegible to apply. More information about the stipend can be found on the Full Spectrum Learning Knight Domains page.


This January we are continuing the practice of running #DigPINS in cohort with other schools by partnering with Kenyon and Davidson Colleges. Each college will have collaborate in their own digital “backchannel” but we will communicate with each other in open networks such as social media platforms.


We will use a variety of technology tools that fall all along the range of open and public. This website is dedicated to the the cohort who are participating at St. Norbert but each cohort will have their own public websites as well.


#DigPINS is an online experience that can be done from anywhere with an internet connection. On a set schedule there will be a variety of events – many of which can be completed on your own time. Synchronous meetings will be scheduled based on participant schedules and recorded for those whose schedules do not permit. #DigPINS does require a minimum of 3-5hrs a week of commitment though someone could spend more time if they were really dedicated.
