To take advantage of and recognize changes in educational technology, West Virginia University is creating a new organizational structure to champion innovation in the classroom and provide a place for faculty to experiment with emerging tools.
The new division will be named Academic Innovation, and Sue Day-Perroots, who has been dean of Extended Learning, will lead the new initiative as associate vice president of academic innovation, effective July 1. She will continue to report to Provost Michele Wheatly.
There will be free food, lots of games, and prizes up to $250 offered for West Virginia University students taking classes in Morgantown this summer. Students taking summer classes are invited to a Hawaiian-themed luau 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29, at the Mountainlair.
