The Center for Academic Innovation provides resources and services for faculty that reinforce Western Oregon University’s core mission as a teaching institution and bolster its commitment to serve evolving educational needs of our students and region.
To fulfill its mission, the Innovation Center supports and promotes innovation by:
- Providing functional end-user support for Moodle, the campus learning management system.
- Supporting programs and projects that increase access to educational opportunities.
- Hosting workshops, seminars, and round-table conversations that explore instructional technology, emerging pedagogies, and the teaching and learning process.
- Partnering with faculty to stimulate a dialogue surrounding the university’s approach to teaching and learning, intentional design and assessment, and the evolution of higher education as a whole.
WOU faculty and staff are invited to collaborate with the Center to foster a sense of community that stimulates dialogue and reflection about excellence in teaching, nurtures a commitment to student access and success, supports the scholarship of teaching and learning, and promotes policies to support and reward innovative, high quality teaching and learning experiences.
