Academic Technology Pilots

Teaching and learning tool discovery, procurement, administration, evaluation, training, user support, and maintenance. These are highly invisible, but important administrative processes that impact the entire campus. They involve partnerships with external vendors and cross-divisional campus collaborations. They also involve formal campus processes, including privacy, security, and accessibility reviews, as well as Senate, Cabinet, Legal, and Fiscal committee approvals.

Faculty Innovation Fellowships

This program is offered to provide faculty with the time and resources needed to design, develop, and implement creative learning experiences related to one of Teaching and Learning Innovations’ focus areas (e.g., creative exploration; boundary-testing; building a model). Fellows join the Teaching and Learning Innovations team for a 1-year period. During this time, they immerse themselves in their proposed project and examine the impact that the project has on student outcomes.
