The Digital Education and Innovation (DEI) team provides instructors with guidance, support, and expertise in innovative teaching and learning strategies. We assist the College of Education and Human Development instructor in developing activities and courses that encourage student engagement and provide deeper learning experiences.

We are a team of highly experienced and diversified eLearning professionals. We’re instructional designers, programmers, and video professionals with advanced degrees in education. We’re a collaborative team and we get excited about using our knowledge and experience to diversify teaching practices, increase student engagement, and improve learning outcomes.
