The Collaboratory for Innovative Design (CID) assists faculty in their roles as teachers and scholars to integrate new pedagogies as they design engaging learning experiences for students. It also creates opportunities for students to develop technical skills and habits of mind essential to success after graduation. As scholars, faculty and students are encouraged and supported to test theories, assess practices, and communicate effectively in the classroom, lab, studio, and beyond.
The mission of the Collaboratory is to create space, resources, and opportunities for faculty and students to design learning experiences through innovation and collaboration.
The Collaboratory values collaboration and encourages faculty and student exploration of innovative teaching and scholarship, and measures success by engagement and learning through successes and failures.
The idea for the Collaboratory for Innovative Design is the result of several distinct yet related conversations that took place in the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 academic years. The proposal to create the CID outlines a vision for providing a 21st century Stonehill education, one that takes place in a climate where technology is ever present and rapidly evolving, In this changing landscape of higher education, support for innovation and pedagogical design are essential to attracting and retaining the best faculty and students.
