Digital Learning & Innovation was established in 2016. Led by Associate Provost Chris Dellarocas, Shipley Professor of Management at the Questrom School of Business, DL&I’s mission is to strengthen Boston University’s position as a world-class higher education institution devoted to learning innovation.
DL&I and its affiliated units—the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL), Educational Technology (EdTech), and newly created Shipley Center for Digital Learning & Innovation—help Boston University leadership, faculty, and staff implement innovative ideas in digital education by incubating select pilot projects, and offer BU educators consultation, training, and production support in the areas of teaching, technology, and residential and online education.
Since its inception, DL&I has been a catalyst in the areas of innovations in teaching and learning. Serving as an accelerator, DL&I managed the production and successful launch of BU’s first two MicroMasters Programs; produced Questrom’s Online MBA; incubated nearly five dozen pilot projects; and supported Boston University leadership, faculty, and graduate student instructors through a wide range of innovative pedagogical and technological services and one-on-one consultation.
