In November 2014, we launched the CELT Online Learning Innovation Hub. The Hub is a central resource for ISU faculty, staff, and graduate students and focuses on promoting best practices for teaching and learning in today’s online environment. The Hub supports faculty initiatives in all areas of online and blended learning including: new online course development; blended/hybrid courses; and innovative course designs and teaching methods that enhance quality of instruction and increase accessibility and responsiveness to student needs.
A signature program for the Online Learning Innovation Hub this year has been the President’s Flipped Classroom Initiative. Through this initiative, sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, CELT has worked with over 60 faculty and staff from 25 academic departments across all seven colleges on 22 individual projects. Participants worked in collaboration with the CELT Online Learning Innovation Hub to develop high quality “flipped classroom” learning experiences that will impact more than 80 courses with a projected annual enrollment of over 12,000students. The first courses from this initiative launched in Fall 2015.
Please join us for an event to showcase these outstanding projects on Thursday, November 19th from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm in the Campanile Room, Iowa State Memorial Union.
