We will be your lab

We strive to be an interdisciplinary physical and virtual lab that transforms the way people teach, learn, research and work. We are committed to:

Collaborating and experimenting with technology

Fostering collaborative learning communities to experiment with technologies and tools that improve faculty productivity and student success.

  • Create new teaching, learning, and research environments in the Student Success District and on the Health Sciences campus, which will leverage deep engagement with technology, collaborative work, and active learning.
  • With campus partners, establish a network of technology-rich maker and innovation spaces for students and faculty to create and connect.

Thinking critically

Expanding instructional partnerships that enable students to develop information literacy, digital literacy and critical thinking skills to support lifelong learning.

Accomplishments thus far

We are making good progress toward this strategic direction. As of Spring 2019, we have:

  • Broken ground on the Student Success District. See library renovations and what you need to know.
  • Visited innovation spaces inside and outside the UA and built relationships with other institutions and stakeholders.
  • Worked with campus leaders to advance digital literacy within the new General Education curriculum.
  • Collaborated with English 102/108 to consider partnerships in the new Wildcat Core curriculum.
