About the Webconference

Thanks to high-profile instructional experiments in recent years, growing numbers of faculty members express an interest in experimenting with how they teach their classes. Yet willing faculty members face risks and must contend with structural barriers that dampen their enthusiasm for learning innovations.

In this webconference, we focus on strategies that academic leaders use to reduce the risk of adopting innovative learning techniques. We also investigate how they tailor course schedules, room assignments, and funding models to promote innovation in the gateway courses that stand to benefit most from non-traditional pedagogies. We conclude with a look at early attempts to realign career incentives to properly reward learning innovations.
