Fostering a Culture of Design Innovation
What We Do
CDIL partners with faculty and programs to design, develop, and implement digital innovation to enhance teaching and learning practice across Boston College in online, hybrid, and face-to-face courses.
Using a design-focused approach, CDIL collaborates with key stakeholders to utilize digital technologies to resolve teaching issues and address the needs of 21st century learners.
The design approach used by CDIL requires a period of consultation, research, prototyping, iteration, and testing. To facilitate this process CDIL generally works with groups of faculty either in formal working groups through partners like ATAB, Departmental programs, or informally arranged working groups of faculty engaging in similar projects.

- Designing Digital Learning Experiences Working Group - a year-long design thinking working group for faculty interested in building digital projects for teaching
