This roundtable is your chance to engage with other like-minded faculty, staff, and administrators from K−12 and higher education on the topic of innovations in digital learning.

We will explore some of the major issues issues that were identified by K−12 and higher education representatives this year, including academic analytics, adaptive learning, gamification, and infrastructure, as well as explore other topics and questions that participants bring to the table.

Participants will also help determine areas of continued engagement over the next year via the Minnesota Learning Commons Innovation SIG. Educause's "2018 Key Issues in Teaching and Learning" (https://www.educause.edu/eli/initiatives/key-issues-in-teaching-and-learning) will be referenced in the roundtable.
