What is Georgia Tech’s Educational Innovation Ecosystem?

Guided by the Office of the Provost, Georgia Tech’s Educational Innovation Ecosystem (EIE) is a coordinated effort of Institute units dedicated to the systemic exploration, development, adoption, and assessment of new and innovative educational methodologies and curricular models, and to furthering the Institute’s efforts in lifelong learning initiatives for both traditional and nontraditional learners. Together, the units grow, support and expand the educational experience at Georgia Tech.

Guiding Principles

  • Put people first – faculty and students desire trust and acceptance.

  • Explore how to enhance teaching and learning continuously and solve the next educational challenge(s).

  • Focus on identifying opportunities/problems first, technology second.

  • Explore IT interconnections and what might plug into our academic technology infrastructure.

  • Provide training and documentation with robust support.

  • Offer evidence-based solutions with data-informed implementation.


Member Organizations and Units

Each organization and unit plays a critical role in the way the educational experience is delivered to the Georgia Tech learner, either residential and digital, from undergraduate and graduate students, to professionals seeking certifications, and the many learners in-between. Together as a team, these units lead and guide the educational innovation mission for the Institute.
