Assignment Context

For this assignment, you will explore the role of innovation in re-imagining learning environments. To do this, you will produce three deliverables:

  1. a case study (maximum 1500 words, APA standards), Unit 2 Activity 2 provides details
  2. a set of design principles (Exhibit 1), Unit 2 Activity 3 provides details and
  3. a continuum of innovation (Exhibit 2) Unit 2 Activity 4 provides details.

You will first need to identify an instance of new or renewal practices in your organizational context. Next, using the case framework provided, you will build a case for these practices that identifies and analyzes the innovative aspect and its impact on learning.

You will need to develop a set of design principles by which you can describe the following:

  1. innovation;
  2. impact on learning;
  3. reliance on technology;
  4. usability;
  5. risk and,
  6. value proposition of innovation in design.

In addition, you will create an appropriate continuum for assessing innovation in your digital learning environment that recognizes that innovation is a continuum of new to renewal.
