It's time for academic innovation to go mainstream
More colleges are aspiring to bring the spirit of research and design to how they teach — and how they serve students — to make higher education more effective and available to a wider diversity of students. Professors, instructional designers and entrepreneurs are leading this change on several fronts:
- Innovative classroom teachers are employing novel strategies and practices.
- Institutions are designing more meaningful and relevant degree programs and credentials.
- New tools are ushering in a “Golden Age” of teaching and learning.
ISTE and EdSurge support such efforts with a growing slate of services to inform and connect higher education leaders and innovators.
