Our conversations will occur across the month, with asynchronous discussion happening on the Open Web, coalescing in a monthly sit-down meeting. (More)
Our Teaching in Higher Education Studio, colloquially known as THE Studio, is a space for faculty to engage creative professionals in the conceptualization, design, implementation and assessment of learning artifacts such as illustrated graphics, audio/visual productions and more.  Our state-of-the-art production studio is designed for high-quality and high-concept projects, delivering instructional material in an aesthetically pleasing fashion.  (More)
Creativity, innovation and inspiration begin with a spark; they take form through hard work and keen scaffolding.  ETM is designed to assist faculty in fanning the spark of inspiration into the flame of a project.  We work with faculty at all stages of the process -- from those who know exactly what they want to accomplish and need help with the development and implementation, to those who don't know what it is they want to see but know where they want to go and want someone to share ideas or potential with.
