ELI Leadership Seminar

The ELI Leadership Seminar, Moving from Piloting to Scale: Lessons Learned in Adaptive Courseware Projects, is designed as an extended learning opportunity threaded throughout the annual meeting program. This highly interactive seminar will engage participants in why educational innovators need to focus on both innovation and moving innovations that work to scale. Universities have always supported innovation but rarely have educational leaders been able to scale key academic innovations. Based on scaled initiatives, participants will learn not only key approaches but also how to approach scaling.

The goals for this seminar are to:

  • Understand the need for both how to support education pilots and scaling success
  • Create an implementation process like that used in the A Guide for Implementing Adaptive Courseware
  • Learn to leverage other leaders in scale to influence your innovation strategy
  • Identify and describe specific strategies that “move the needle” on what matters to your school
  • Learn more about adaptive courseware as a sample of an academic innovation that is scaling
