Tuesday, February 04 | 12:30PM–1:15PM | Napoleon Ballroom
Session Type: Professional Development

UW–Madison's Educational Innovation (EI) effort empowers faculty, staff, and students to be change agents to enhance student learning and generate new resources. Learn how we implemented an institutional change effort and created a campus culture that values educational innovation, supports efforts to scale and sustain this innovation, uses institutional change strategies to encourage alliances and partnerships, and defines outcomes, implements pilots, and analyzes metrics for sustaining innovation. We will describe activities over the past two years and our successes and lessons learned, as well as our plans for the next five years.


OUTCOMES: Learn strategies for starting and sustaining an institutional change effort related to educational innovation * Hear concrete examples that demonstrate how campus technology and academic leaders can partner to move scalable and sustainable educational innovations forward * Discuss with peers how to adopt or adapt some of our strategies on your own campus
