Center for Academic Innovation

We support Montana Tech’s faculty, staff, and students in their
online and face-to-face efforts towards academic excellence.

Thank you to all who attended XLI 2022 in Butte!

 The Extended Learning Institute (XLi) 2022 was a rousing success as it shared ideas and techniques focused on this year’s them: “Teaching the whole student through intentional design."

 We must thank our amazing keynote speakers, Dr. Michelle Pacansky-Brock and Dr. Thomas J. Tobin who talked to us about humanizing the online classroom on Thursday, and getting started with universal design for learning on Friday.

In addition, MSUB’s Center for Teaching and Learning’s HyFlex workshop has received rave reviews. If you are interested in more information on HyFlex course design, please reach out to Joy Honea.

If you attended the XLi 2022 either virtually or face-to-face and would like to view the recordings of the presentations, please contact Kat McCormick for access information. (Please note – not all presentations were recorded due to various issues ranging from presenter request to some technical difficulties. We apologize if the recording you are seeking is one of those.)

 Thank you again to all our attendees, planners, and sponsors!
