- Welcome to the first #DLNchat of 2017!
- Q1: What are the most pressing higher-ed problems that experimentation and innovation can/should address?
- — Ben Scragg (@bscragg)Tue, Jan 10 2017 21:15:44A1: This is vague, but pushing for innovations on campus that are pedagogically creative, rather than just efficient or subsitutive #dlnchat
- — Maria H. Andersen (@busynessgirl)Tue, Jan 10 2017 21:10:44Not enough attention is paid to qualitative data for course design/redesign. Data-driven means we have oversimplified the problems. #DLNchat
- — Jennifer Rafferty (@palomitica29)Tue, Jan 10 2017 21:14:10A1: Compliance with accessibility. How to help faculty and admin embrace it rather than it being seen as a burden. #DLNchat
- — Mike Daniel (@MichaelDaniel_)Tue, Jan 10 2017 21:12:58A1: go beyond the traditional transcript so students can showcase more than just grades as evidence of their accomplishments #dlnchat
- Q2: At your institution, what problems require incremental improvement vs. radical innovation? How do you decide?
- — tytonpartners (@tytonpartners)Tue, Jan 10 2017 21:16:27A2: You incrementally improve what is growing, you turnaround that which is broken. We need more “turnaround" stories in #highered #DLNChat https://twitter.com/OLCToday/status/818929106553290752 …

- — Ben Scragg (@bscragg)Tue, Jan 10 2017 21:22:26A2: I'm wanting more & more to celebrate incremental changes, paradoxically, b/c of process validation, long-term impelemntability #dlnchat
- — Cali Morrison (@calimorrison)Tue, Jan 10 2017 21:20:38#DLNchat Radical innovation gets projects/programs going. Incremental improvement needs 2 follow through entire lifecycle of project/program https://twitter.com/OLCToday/status/818929106553290752 …
- Q3: Innovation requires "safe to fail" cultures. What are the barriers to fostering a "safe to fail" culture around experimentation at institutions?
- — Melissa A. Venable (@Melissa_Venable)Tue, Jan 10 2017 21:24:54A3) Those reporting "the numbers" really only want to see improvements, even if you learn something important w/a missed goal. #dlnchat
- — Cali Morrison (@calimorrison)Tue, Jan 10 2017 21:26:09A3: 1st: Mindset 2nd Budget 3rd Time #DLNchat All of these can be overcome. And if you have mindset and time, shoestring projects work https://twitter.com/OLCToday/status/818931135770202114 …
January #DLNchat: How can institutions build cultures of experimentation to drive "more than incremental" change?
