ODLOffice of Digital Learning
Leading arts + design into the future
Founded in 2005 as the e-Learning Institute, the Office of Digital Learning partners with faculty and staff throughout the College of Arts & Architecture to identify projects that might benefit from informed incorporation of technology. Working closely with schools and departments, the Institute offers design, development, and delivery support for online course materials, whether incorporated in “web-only” courses, hybrid delivery courses, or targeted enhancements for residential instruction.
The Office of Digital Learning’s mission is to take a leading position in the future of the disciplines represented in the College of Arts and Architecture by providing greater opportunities for instructional innovation, courseware development, and research in the arts and design. The Institute collaborates with the various disciplines throughout the College to assist them in the identification, development, and deployment of online and blended learning courses and programs, as well as supports digitally-inflected research opportunities in the arts and design, while maintaining the creative and innovative aspects each discipline embodies.
Objectives + opportunities
- Collaborate with faculty members on the development of online courses and blended learning materials for delivery in both resident and distance courses.
- Support explorations of technology to identify the value of tools in teaching and learning, outreach, and scholarship.
- Enhance interdisciplinary education (within and beyond the College of Arts & Architecture), innovation, and research in the arts and design through the use of digital technologies.
