The Online Learning Innovation and Incubation Strategy is designed to underpin the work of u!magine in establishing a culture of innovation in online learning technologies and teaching practices. Key stakeholders in the strategy include u!magine, online educators, learning designers, learning technologists, researchers, learning and teaching leadership staff and students (both as beneficiaries of innovation and as innovators in their own right).
Foster a Community of Innovation in online learning that involves our staff and students, businesses, education providers and local communities. Create a network for various stakeholders from within CSU and external partners to create a community around innovation that engages our talented community of staff and students which make them part of an innovation process within CSU that creates opportunities to harness their skills and knowledge.
Establish processes to develop our own Creative Solutions to the issues faced in online learning and teaching. Provide opportunities and methods of stimulating, capturing and seeking out new ideas around online learning within CSU. Identify the kinds of problems in online learning that need to be solved to improve student learning and teaching experience.
Promote the Adoption and Adaption of new technologies and practices in online learning. Nurture and support new ideas and technologies for possible uptake by a broader audience. Evaluate ideas by creating opportunities to pilot and trial new technologies and practices.
Develop Future Pathways for projects beyond the incubation stage. Promote ideas and practices developed within CSU to a broader audience and provide channels for communicating and sharing ideas. Scale Up ideas by developing pathways for future development, mainstreaming, commercialisation and growth of viable technologies, systems and practices
