Winning Faculty Buy-In for Digital Learning Innovation

For academic leaders looking to build a sustainable, scalable approach to digital learning innovation, getting faculty on board is a critical step. How can you best encourage and support faculty in stepping out of their comfort zones and exploring these new opportunities to improve student success?

In this session, Realizeit CEO Manoj Kulkarni will lead a discussion with Dr. Tom Cavanagh, Vice Provost for Digital Learning at the University of Central Florida, and Dr. J. Garvey Pyke, Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, about the steps they’re taking and what it takes to succeed at this sometimes-challenging task.

Attendees will learn:

• What motivates faculty to explore digitally enhanced teaching
• How to find faculty innovators
• The top objections you’ll hear – and how to overcome them
