The objectives of this meeting are:
1. Provide an update on the UNC System Office Digital Learning Initiative and allow the UNC community the opportunity to contribute to its development
2. Learn what other provosts across the country are doing to support the advancement of digital learning on their campuses
3. Garner early feedback on what topics and activities should be included in our spring digital learning conference
The first objective of this meeting is to provide the UNC community an update date on, and contribute to the development of the System-wide digital learning initiative. At this time, we will be half way through a business case research project aimed at identifying the opportunities for the System in the digital learning space. This research will be presented and there will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions. We will also have an active workshop to allow participants to contribute to the development of scenarios of how digital learning may be instantiated across the System in the future.
The second objective is to share work being done by 30 provosts across the U.S. to advance the appropriate use of digital learning. UNC Charlotte Provost, Joan Lorden, recently completed the Digital Fellows Program from the Association of Chief Academic Officers (ACAO), sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. One goal of the program was to pilot the use of next generation digital courseware and then curate best practices and resources that can be shared with other institutions. In this session, Provost Lorden will share the lessons learned and the resources that the UNC Community can leverage at their institutions.
The third objective of this meeting is to garner early feedback on what topics and activities that will be presented at the Spring Digital Learning Conference in March 2019.
