Technology-enabled educational innovation is a driving force in higher education and the events of recent years have accelerated Boston University's transformational vision. The creative application of digital technologies in education is taking center stage—a transformation that will have a direct and powerful impact on the residential learning experience.

Since its inception, Digital Learning & Innovation 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 consultations.
