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.
