Welcome to The Center for Instructional Innovation. This is your destination for on-going support as we work together to serve the needs of both the 21st century world and our students. Here, we come together as peers to share ideas, questions, successes, and yes- the occasional snares we all sometimes fall into as work to ensure that the education we provide for our students will serve them today and tomorrow.
Please feel free to browse the resources posted here. Many more will soon be coming, along with multiple opportunities for collaboration on many levels. Live, synchronous discussions will take place here soon along with demonstrations, debates, and simulations.
As we launch The Center for Instructional Innovation (The CII), it is crucial that you recognize how seriously we take our mission: to promote and enhance teaching and learning effectiveness. Education truly is a team sport and no one person can be all things to all students; only by combining our strengths, ideas, issues, and experiences can we, as a faculty and as individuals, move our practice to a higher level.
Thank you for all that you do for Brandman, our students, and our community.

Any BU instructor who gives a presentation (best practices, research, poster,...) at a reputable, professionally relevant conference is invited to share his/her achievement with the rest of the BU faculty in a special CII webinar. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of the conference and the presentation after it has taken place and we will contact you to arrange an online date that works for you.
All live trainings take place in the Virtual Training Room, http://brandman.adobeconnect.com/cii
