Twetten Appointed to EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) Advisory Board
ELI is a community of higher education institutions and organizations committed to advancing learning through information technology innovation. ELI is a strategic initiative of EDUCAUSE. While EDUCAUSE serves those interested in advancing higher education through technology, ELI specifically explores innovative technologies and practices that advance learning. As these innovations mature, ELI works with the larger EDUCAUSE community to integrate them into the higher education mainstream.
ELI focuses programming on three main areas: supporting learners, advancing learning principles & practices, and investigating learning technologies, all to help institutions improve and transform the learning and teaching process. Current ELI projects include "Seeking Evidence of Impact," a program actively hunting the higher education landscape for data that points to and supports good learning systems and practices, and catalyzes new collaborations to advance evidence-based applications of learning innovation.
Iowa State University is an ELI-member institution, which avails ELI resources to the entire campus community. More information on ELI can be found at www.educause.edu/eli.
