SET Presents: A Case of Thinking Differently


At a time when universities face numerous challenges, it is critical to seek creative solutions and approaches to education.

Join the School of Education and Technology Wednesday, March 20 from 12 to 1 p.m. on the Grant Quarterdeck for a special presentation by the University of Hawaii’s Prof. Catherine Fulford on a case of academic transformation.

A Case of Thinking Differently: Entrepreneurship or Intrepreneurship in Higher Education will explore how a few university professors used intrepreneurship and entrepreneurship to transform their department, college and university to better use educational technology to improve learning and teaching.

The institution used a system of reciprocity to create a highly motivated team. It also focused on sustainability, which allowed the university to make the most of taxpayer money and leverage financial resources.

The presentation will be hosted by School of Education and Technology Prof. George Veletsianos, who will also discuss some of the challenges and opportunities facing higher education.

Dr. Catherine Fulford is professor of learning design and technology in the College of Education at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Her teaching and research interests include technology integration, mobile learning, visual design and flipped learning.

You can attend in person or via video conference.
