Florida A&M University, the historically Black educational institution in Tallahassee, has launched a new Digital Learning Initiative to promote student engagement, class discussions and instruction all within the swipe of an iPad or tablet.

The program’s objectives include:

  • Improving the quality of the student learning experience
  • Enhancing the instructional knowledge and expertise of faculty who are committed to transforming their learning environments through digital innovation

According to Genyne Boston, associate provost for faculty affairs and faculty development at Florida A&M University, the initiative works to ensure that faculty members connect with students in the technology realm they are familiar with, such as the use of popular apps, to enhance learning outcomes and the learning environment.

“The goal of the Provost’s Digital Learning Initiative is to transform the teaching and learning landscape at Florida A&M University in order to ensure that our students have exceptional experiences in the classroom,” Dr. Boston said. “Digital innovations like those adopted by our initiative promote student-centered instructional practice and enhance the expertise of our outstanding faculty.”
