The Long Tail of Innovation

Tuesday, October 02 | 4:50PM–5:10PM
Session Type: Professional Development

University of Mary Washington's Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies will demonstrate how its exploratory approaches to ed tech over the past seven years has been driven by a community undergirded by a common vision and shared values. Our innovative work, from UMW Blogs to ds106 to A Domain of One's Own, has been born out of the idea that students and faculty must to be empowered to own and maintain their work on the web. This presentation will trace the long tail of this approach and articulate how innovation at UMW has been about regularly returning to and building on shared values of designing open, distributed networks for learning on campus.
