Institute for Academic Innovation - working across the University (and across the community) on projects dedicated to improving teaching and learning. Working as the 'connective tissue' between faculty, staff, administration and students.

Canvas implementation - one quarter into full Canvas adoption and we are...quiet.  Very quiet.  Everyone wants to think it's the eye of the hurricane, but research shows we had as close to a picture perfect roll-out as possible.

OER Project - as part of a multi-step process, beginning with faculty adoption of OER in lieu of traditional textbooks.  Expecting students in this limited pilot to see a cost savings of >$50,000.

Professional Development - serving the 2016-2017 year around Canvas topics, but preparing a monumental 2017-2018 PD year around progressive approaches to research and scholarship, tied into our Day of Common Learning and faculty retreat.
