 Institute Philosophy & Pedagogy

The current paradigm shift requires unprecedented synergy and collaboration between academic and enrollment management. A philosophy that is both learner and learning centered must be focused through a lens that is intensely curriculum-centered. The Institute curriculum delivers practical strategic solutions for short, medium and long range impact. Institute pedagogy uses a blended seminar style guided by a digital interactive syllabus with readings, self-study and participant dialog. Participants’ home institution will be the subject of their case study. Participants will continue to have the opportunity for interaction with institute colleagues long after attending the program as they contribute to the emerging Academic SEM community of practice.About the Faculty
