Abstract

In general, faculty technology adoption lags behind administration, research, and learning support. The Innov8 Academy was developed at Polk State College to increase faculty confidence and utilization in effectively integrating technology into instruction using the action research process. Innov8 Academy sought to build formal institutional support mechanisms that would encourage self-growth and the widespread implementation of technologies that would impact student learning and success. Program participants attended an intensive four-day summer institute and monthly community of practice sessions. At the conclusion of each cohort, participants shared their findings through a poster session with the entire academic community. Currently, three cohorts completed Innov8 Academy with the fourth cohort in progress. This session will share the implementation process and supporting strategies used to develop the culture of innovation.
