Teaching & Learning

New Directions in Teaching and Learning

The last decade of higher education has been marked by tremendous changes in instruction and technology, increased expectations, and greater scrutiny of both practices and results.

To support Indiana University’s teaching mission, President Michael McRobbie has asked each campus to come together to pioneer new approaches to teaching and learning.

Innovation at the Campus Level

To achieve meaningful results, IU’s campuses must be the driving force behind this initiative. A New Directions in Teaching and Learning committee will be established on each campus, with members who represent:

  • Senior academic administrators
  • Faculty members who have distinguished themselves in scholarship and teaching
  • Students who have distinguished themselves in their studies

Innovation across Indiana University

A New Directions in Teaching and Learning Committee has been established to coordinate the work of these campus committees, provide general direction, suggest avenues of exploration, and ensure steady progress.

It will host a conference in Spring 2011 to discuss each campus’s interim reports, make initial recommendations, identify common themes and opportunities for intercampus or university-wide collaboration, and recommend which actions or areas should become university priorities.

Following the conference, each committee will issue a final report at the end of the 2010-2011 academic year.
