We welcome inquiries from Deans, department chairs, faculty, and staff interested in transforming education at Boston University. We help to deploy evidence-based learning methods and digital technologies in all of BU’s learning environments.
We also would love to hear about your current activities. Are you trying new things to enrich student learning? Do you have a success story to tell about how you’ve transformed a specific aspect of your course or program? We intend this website to become a clearinghouse of Success Stories, how-to information, and resources for the BU academic and administrative community. Contact us Today
