Join us for "Emerging Technologies, Innovation, and Academic Transformation," the ELI 2012 Online Fall Focus Session, October 2–3. We all feel the need to innovate and transform our current practices to keep pace with a landscape that is rapidly evolving. While there is no shortage of innovations in teaching and learning, the process by which we discover them, select them for pilots, and consider them for full-scale implementation can be challenging.
I was shocked at how many people attended the two recent ELI webinars on the topic of analytics. With that kind of energy, it seems natural to form a ComETS group. Especially since doing analytics "right" would involve data from a number of campus sources.
