Establishing a Digital Learning Environment with DTEI

Emerging technologies and digital learning platforms open massive potential for educators to implement various pedagogical innovations to enrich students' learning experiences. Instructors at higher education institutions are eager to integrate active learning activities with technology-enhanced teaching strategies in the classroom. Our mission is to support UCI faculty by creating an efficient Next Generation Digital Learning Environment to enrich students' learning experiences, enhance student engagement, and improve learning outcomes.

The Learning Experience Design and Online Education (LEOE) team provides faculty consultation and support in various digital learning and online teaching related matters including online teaching, course development, pedagogical innovation consultation, third-party tool training, teaching with technology support, and more. We also collaborate with the Office of Information Technology (OIT) to co-support UCI faculty with their pedagogical teaching needs with the Canvas Learning Management System.
