Mission

Developing quality academic programming that is student-centered and supports innovative teaching and learning is TEI’s mission.

To accomplish this, TEI:

  • utilizes an evolving approach to course development that is informed by current research, trends in online education, industry-wide best practices, and the Quality Matters rubric;
  • collaborates with subject matter experts to translate real-world and/or professional experience into content that contextualizes concepts/material in ways a text cannot;
  • assists faculty in creating assessments that, in addition to meeting the needs of all learners, emphasize inquiry, discovery,  active engagement, and student-to-student interaction;
  • employs principles of Universal Design and, thus, provides learners with multiple ways to engage with course content in an environment that is user-friendly and meets standards for accessibility and readability;
  • believes that the way a course looks is just as important to delivery as the quality of its content and, as such, assigns equal importance to architecture and aesthetics in establishing credibility and communicating professionalism;
  • provides technical leadership, assesses needs, and develops training that prepares faculty to use the learning management system and other hardware/software effectively.
