Learning Innovation

The Distance Learning Institute aims to enhance student access to academic programming through partnering with educators, schools and colleges, and community organizations to help train and develop online courses and trainings.

Via our online programs and partnerships, we coach our partners in the acquisition of new instructional design skills that will be vital to their professional growth and development and will provide their students with the kind of learning environments that facilitate the acquisition of the technical skills and training they will need to be successful.

We are committed to providing you with the support and knowledge you need. Please contact us if there’s a topic you’d like to see us expand on, a case study you’d like to learn more about, or if there’s a project or program you’d like our expertise in perfecting.

DLI Quest

The DLI Quest was created to encourage UM faculty to pursue professional development training to improve their online learning environments. Faculty can attend EdTech Café Sessions, where professionals gather to discuss methods for engaging and motivating students, complete narrative technique trainings, and present their own topics and case studies during EdTech Café sessions.
