SUNY Blend: Supporting Student Success – an NGLC Project Report

Supporting Course Transformation at Scale - Educause invited NGLC panel


Encouraging pedagogical innovation at your institution can be a delicate balancing act that requires a nuanced understanding of faculty needs and a spirit of collaboration, good communication, and shared goals. But how can you support that transformation at institutions outside your own walls, when each has its own distinct faculty and academic culture? Join two recent NGLC grantees, the University of Central Florida and the SUNY Learning Network, to learn how they are using innovative approaches, open resources, and online tools to support course transformation across vast networks.
