The Center for Academic Innovation collaborates with faculty and staff from across the university to build and support a culture of innovation. One of the ways it does this is through the development and support of Academic Innovation at Michigan (AIM) Communities.
This fall, AIM will reboot the “Simulations Community of Practice” to focus more deeply on role-playing simulations. In winter 2020, the “Gameful Learning Community” will relaunch and bring together instructors from across campus to advance the use of gameful pedagogy in residential courses. The “Online and Hybrid Programs community” has a set of smaller affinity groups for degree program leaders and support staff, as well as larger gatherings for the entire community for discussions on overarching challenges.
