The University of North Carolina Office of Learning Technology and Innovation has announced the selection of 28 fellows to participate in the second annual Instructional Innovation Incubator (i3@UNC) to be held this year at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

The i3@UNC program supports UNC system faculty in the development of new online and blended courses that expand educational opportunities and improve student learning outcomes. Faculty participants are designated i3@UNC Fellows. Fellows work under the guidance of state and national experts in instructional technology and design to develop new online and blended courses. The program fosters a system-wide community of faculty innovators in teaching and learning.

Fellows were chosen by a selection committee composed of i3@UNC alumni, program directors, and Matthew Rascoff, vice president for technology-based learning at UNC General Administration.

“This year i3@UNC will bring together 28 faculty innovators from 13 institutions of the UNC system. Our shared mission is to create learning experiences for students that set the standard for quality,” said Mr. Rascoff. “I cannot wait to get started.”

Fellows must be full-time faculty in the UNC system, who are tenured, tenure-track, or have at least five years of full-time teaching experience. i3@UNC fellows develop new online or blended courses that meet the needs of a broad set of students; develop core intellectual skills; and engage students in active learning.

The UNC system currently offers 337 online degree and certificate programs. Last academic year 39 percent of the system’s 221,000 students took at least one online course and 9 percent of students were fully online.
