Discussion of Project Ideas: Enhance BU’s residential experience

Monday, December 2, 2013 / 5-6pm
1 Silber Way, 8th Floor, Provost Conference Room


How can we use technology to enhance the BU campus experience so that it retains its value in the face of increasingly effective low-cost digital modes of learning? Examples may include (1) innovative experiments using blended courses; (2) innovative uses of MOOC materials in residential settings; (3) online courses, modules, activities, or portfolios that more effectively connect students and employers; (4) projects that enhance the experience, reach, and impact of BU study abroad programs; (5) courses, programs or technologies that creatively use “Boston as a classroom.” If you propose a project in this area, we consider it very important that you give thought to how the results of your project or experiment can be measured. Please briefly address this in your proposal.
