Academic and Instructional Innovation

We work with faculty, staff, and students to support teaching and learning, faculty development, and professional growth.

A&II is a team of instructional designers, educational technologists, system administrators, and software developers who can help you apply teaching best practices to your curriculum, make your courses current, relevant, and efficient, and help students get the most from their learning experience. We want to help you create fun, rewarding, and transformative teaching experiences. Most importantly, we want to help you succeed.

We collaborate closely with the Center for Innovation and Excellence in Learning (CIEL), Educational Assessment, Institutional Research, Information Technology Services, and Media Services to support faculty in mastering the academic technology and digital media skills that today’s student learning experience demands.

Our Goals

  • Support faculty in designing, delivering, and assessing effective learning resources and activities
  • Facilitate effective use and leveraging of academic technology
  • Develop tools and processes for enhancing teaching, learning, and assessment
  • Facilitate faculty discourse, collaboration, and development
  • Engage in professional development
