Office of Innovation and Outreach

The Middle Georgia State University Office of Innovation and Outreach provides valuable resources to our faculty and is dedicated to offering a quality educational experience for all Middle Georgia State University students engaged in online learning. This team is comprised of the following units:

  • Academic Technology Services: provides university-wide research, evaluation, and support for applications used for teaching and learning.
  • Innovations in Teaching and Learning: provides multiple tiers of faculty and staff development in an effort to advance the university's strategic plan, integrate contemporary learning theory, emerging learning environments, and the integration of technology in learner focused environments.
  • Instructional Design and Development: provides support for the systematic design of learner-focused learning opportunities across a wide variety of learning environments including highly interactive f2f, situated, fully online, hybrid, and technology mediated stackable credentials. Content development and basic application development are also provided in collaboration with faculty, staff, or other subject matter experts who are creating new or redesigning existing learning opportunities.
  • Learning Launchpad: provides a virtual space for faculty, staff, or any subject matter expert to deliver a learning opportunity that may serve as a pathway into college or provide timely continuing education helping one advance their career. Courses, credentials, and learning modules may be developed and delivered by faculty or staff at MGA, by community members, or people working in private companies.
