for the Innovation Forum at The University of Alabama System Scholars Institute.
UA, UAB and UA Huntsville faculty were invited to submit a one page summary of innovative
activities and approaches that further student critical thinking and understanding
of the visual and digital world. The submission includes a description of the innovation,
an impact report, and summary of lessons learned.
Four faculty submissions were selected to review their topic at the Scholars Institute.
The review was about their innovative activities or approaches. All submissions were
included in the UA System Scholars Institute participant packets.
