A new online learning innovation hub that aims to spur the development and use of online and blended learning approaches has come to the ISU campus, the Iowa State Daily reports.
The innovation hub was established by the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching.
“The online learning innovation hub will provide institutional leadership and support for faculty who are interested in implementing blended and fully-online learning approaches into their courses,” said Ann Marie Vanderzanden, director for the center.
Vanderzanden said that the hub will focus on four main goals: themes of quality, innovation, collaboration and support.
“[The center’s] staff will work closely with faculty in developing appropriate teaching approaches and integrating effective technologies to help students achieve course learning goals,” she said.
