Innovation at the Intersection of Technology and Teaching

Innovation is such a popular topic it is almost cliché as it is applied in education and other fields. Higher education institutions are expected to innovate with their educational technology solutions, yet a common theoretical and practical understanding of innovation is often elusive and ill-defined for those who are expected to manage it. In this presentation, Leif Nelson will share some of the frameworks and models that have been successfully used at Boise State to manage change, create buy-in, and, of course, to innovate with educational technologies at his institution. Leif will share examples of initiatives at Boise State where theory and practice converged to promote innovative teaching and learning with technology.


  • Describe foundational theories and models of innovation
  • Apply tools and processes that promote innovation in education
  • Contemplate the role of innovation as it relates to higher education's function as a public good
