What is Educational Innovation?development framework

Developing new approaches to curriculum and research, Educational Innovation (EI) is a campus-wide initiative to set the university on the path to greater self-sufficiency.

How will EI work?

A coordinated effort, Educational Innovation will help create a sustained campus environment by:

  • Improving university capacities
  • Generating new resources to enhance student learning
  • Reinforcing research excellence

One of the central goals of the Educational Innovation initiative is designing and delivering degrees and certificates that attract new post-traditional audiences to educational opportunities.
The EI initiative will attract new, post-traditional audiences by:

  • Offering degree and certificate programs not a part of our usual curriculum
  • Providing high quality learning opportunities in accessible formats, which include evening, weekend, online programs

Be an agent for change.

The Department of Continuing Studies Education Innovation Program Development team can help you develop a post-traditional degree or certificate program based on your ideas and areas of expertise.
