The Office of Academic Innovation is charged with creating a culture of innovation in learning. As a catalyst for academic innovation we aim to shape the future of learning and redefine public residential education at a 21st century research university by unlocking new opportunities and enabling personalized, engaged, and lifelong learning for the U-M community and learners around the world.
Personalization at Scale
We facilitate large scale tech solutions that support teaching and learning, bringing powerful tools into classrooms and creating a foundation for developing open technologies.
We partner with faculty to research and support new modes of learning, from flipped classrooms to residential MOOCs to interdisciplinary programs.
Leadership in Learning Analytics
Through learning analytics, we are helping to empower students, faculty, administrators and staff to make more informed choices to improve learning outcomes.
Academic Innovation Fund
maximizing institutional impact
The Academic Innovation Fund provides faculty innovators the funding and partnership support needed to design and develop teaching and learning initiatives that harness technology and learning analytics to shape the future of learning and redefine public residential education at a 21st century research university.
Academic Innovation is charged by President Schlissel and Provost Pollack to lead the Academic Innovation Initiative to consider how U-M will lead the way for higher education through the information age and further strengthen our impact on society.
