Creating a Collaborative Culture to Support Innovative Online Teaching and Learning

Wednesday, February 12 | 3:30PM–4:15PM | Oregon Ballroom Salon AB
Session Type: Professional Development
While speakers at EDUCAUSE and IT conferences champion the importance of innovation in teaching and learning, IT staff bemoan the lack of innovation in teaching and learning at their institutions. What role can IT staff and faculty each play in developing a culture of innovation around online teaching, learning, and technology? In this session, we'll share tactics and supports we've put in place to create an innovative culture for our faculty and IT staff, and how we foster good relationships between the two groups.

OUTCOMES: Recognize the importance of faculty and IT co-innovating in online learning * Discover how innovation in the classroom and innovation in IT build on each other * Explore strategies that can create innovative development environments
