Whether instruction is face-to-face, online, or at a distance, Academic Outreach and Innovation (AOI) has expertise to help.

  • Learning Spaces—Learning spaces include anything from software connectivity to hardware installations to room modifications and classroom layout. AOI Learning Innovations staff not only monitor technology health remotely and in real-time for a variety of academic delivery systems, but are also available to provide consultation services with regard to learning spaces.

AOI staff can help with conceptualizing and design as well as equipment and software specifications, testing, building, and training.
  • Instructional Designers—All AOI IDs have both teaching and Instructional Design experience. Their goal is to support the development of courses and activities that facilitate learning and alignment of goals, activities, and assessments in a multitude of learning environments.
  • Emerging Technologists—With education and experience in teaching and technology, Emerging Technologists focus on identification and sound pedagogical implementation of educational technology tools.
  • ADA—Our ADA Compliance Manager ensures we are doing our best (and following the law) to make our courses accessible to all students all of the time.
