A Catalyst for Impactful Innovation
Established in 2010, C21U is Georgia Tech’s living laboratory for fundamental change in education. Serving as a research arm of the Office of the Provost, C21U’s team of technologists and researchers support Georgia Tech’s mission of innovation by pushing the boundaries of what is already done in higher education in order to bring the most impactful resources and technologies to learners.
We serve as a nexus of collaboration and communication, and a catalyst for innovation, bringing together a broad array of internal and external partners across a wide variety of disciplines. Through a sustained and systemic program of research, experimentation, design, prototyping, and implementation, C21U serves the Institute in thought leadership, educational technology design, community building, and support of Georgia Tech stakeholders of all ages.
The Digital Credentials Consortium (DCC) is a collaboration between twelve institutions across the world with the goal of creating a centralized platform or standard for academic credentials across universities and other education providers so that students can easily receive, store, and share their credential records. This one-stop solution will enable admission committees and employers to ensure credential accuracy, detect fraudulent credentials, and engage in a holistic assessment of a student’s skills.
Broadly speaking, this project involves three kinds of tools:
Since the launch of the Commission on Creating the Next in Education's groundbreaking 2018 report, Deliberate Innovation, Lifetime Education, much has changed at Georgia Tech. We have a new university president and a new provost. We've experienced a completely novel academic year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Blended learning combines traditional face-to-face learning with technology-enabled education. Its pedagogical aim is to merge the scale, asynchrony, and flexibility of online learning with the benefits of the traditional classroom—content-rich instruction and the development of learning relationships. This book offers a guide to the theory and practice of blended learning, offering rigorous research, case studies, and methods for the assessment of educational effectiveness.
