Description

Session 1:  Great Expectations II: Innovation, Infrastructure, and Digital Learning

Executive Vice President & Provost Chase invites you to a special presentation by Dr. Kenneth C. Green, director of the new Digital Fellows Project. The Digital Fellows Project, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, provides campus leaders with information and resources to help faculty understand and adopt digital learning resources that enhance student learning, increase retention and degree completion, and improve institutional outcomes.

Dr. Green has spent nearly three decades working with academic institutions to uncover the elements that foster innovation in instruction. He is committed to helping institutions understand how to make technology-enhanced teaching and learning (digital learning) compelling and safe for the faculty.

His work recognizes that there is a need for empirical evidence about how innovation affects student learning and outcomes. He also advocates that current institutional structures are not designed to recognize and reward faculty who pursue innovation in their instructional activities and scholarship.

Dr. Green will inform and entertain, and at times also annoy. He believes “a little dissonance can be a good thing.”

For a preview of some of the topics to be discussed, visit Dr. Green’s digitalweek blog to review a posting entitled “Innovation and the Fear of Trying.”

Light refreshments will be served.
