Change 1 Thing

Change 1 Thing! Fall/Spring 22-23

The Academic Technology Department in conjunction with the Academic Affairs Office is pleased to announce the Change 1 Thing! Challenge.

Innovation in education involves finding better ways of doing something and new ways to look at problems. If we think differently about the things, we can create new opportunities for innovative learning. This challenge is to work collaboratively with Academic Technology to change one thing for your Spring 2023 class.

“Change is an opportunity to do something amazing”
George Couros
