Our community began as a crowd-sourced eBook project, “Cultivating Change in the Academy: 50+ Stories from the Digital Frontlines at the University of Minnesota in 2012.” Starting from a simple invitation, our collaboration of 130 authors and 15 designers produced a 50+ chapter eBook and companion site in just 10 weeks. The experience was humbling, inspiring, and ultimately a testament to potential of open source and networked approaches to research, learning, and innovation.

We created the Cultivating Change Community site as platform for open collaboration and to host a community of practice exploring opportunities for academic innovation on the digital frontlines.  We are a University of Minnesota system based community, but we welcome collaboration from other institutions, industry, and the public.

We are an open community, welcoming participants and partners to contribute to existing projects or to help start new ones.  You can contact us here.  Create an account and join us today!
