Fund for Innovation Festival at MIIS

Students share their experience with Team Tandem, a reciprocal language learning initiative that connects MIIS Spanish learners with the local Hispanic community.

Many of you may have read about the celebration of educational innovation that took place at the College on April 6 and 7. What you may not know is that the Fund for Innovation is actively supporting innovation on both the Middlebury and the Monterey campuses. A contingent of Institute faculty, staff, and students joined their College colleagues virtually to hear David Helfand’s inspiring talk, followed the next day by a lively faculty panel and demonstrations/presentations on several funded projects at the Digital Learning Commons.

The Virtual Reality Test Kitchen invited participants to explore and interact in virtual spaces, and help us imagine ways to use VR for learning.
