New Directions for Teaching and Learning Technologies: Strategy and Results of Next.IU
David A. Goodrum, Director, Instructional Technology Systems and Services, Indiana University Bloomington
Next.IU is a two-year initiative consisting of several pilots exploring the future for teaching and learning technologies at Indiana University. Areas of exploration include collaboration and social networking; content creation, sharing, and reuse; portfolio creation and management; and learning and teaching activity management. In this session, we'll explain the strategy behind our approach and share the results of completed pilots using a multipronged analysis of student/faculty, functional, and technical perspectives.

OUTCOMES: Learn about a multiprong approach to piloting, analyzing, and evaluating new systems and applications for teaching and learning * Hear results of completed pilots * Learn how IU is moving beyond the standard LMS to a new learning ecosystem

Flipping Our Website
Pat Reid, Manager, Teaching and Learning Initiatives, Purdue University
Purdue's IT website has a section on instructional technologies, which includes a lot of information about the services we provide. For faculty who know what service they want, this approach works well; however, often we find faculty do not know where to start. Recently, we launched a new companion site, focused on faculty issues and pedagogies that lead to technology use. This session will invite participants to explore the site and provide feedback.

OUTCOMES: Discuss and share our institutional website approaches * Explore Purdue's new approach and provide suggestions and feedback * Identify methods you can use to improve your website
