Why I Choose to Work at Academic Innovation

I started working here for the opportunity to contribute to projects that have a global impact.

Current Roles/Previous Experience

As Operations Lead in the Office of Academic Innovation (AI), Dave works closely with the Director of Academic Innovation Policy and Operations, and all Academic Innovation teams to develop and refine the underlying social, technical and process infrastructure required to meet AI’s growing project and administrative needs. His areas of foci include internal project management, human resources, documentation and record keeping, student mentorship, and optimizing internal and external collaboration processes.

Dave was previously a Project Manager in the Digital Education and Innovation Lab (DEIL), where he managed the production and launch of more than 20 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Prior to joining Academic Innovation, Dave worked with the University of Michigan Medical School’s Open.Michigan Initiative. At Open.Michigan, Dave collaborated with faculty members to create, publish and promote a variety of digital learning materials, including: residential learning modules, wikibooks, open textbooks, open educational resources, mobile applications and massive open online courses.
