Beginning fall semester 2019, Lourdes freshmen will benefit from an enhanced learning experience supported by open source materials on iPad Pros. The iWolf Power of Innovative Learning program at Lourdes University will incorporate the latest technology inside the classroom. Faculty and students will be able to engage on a common technology platform that enriches faculty/student and peer/peer interaction. Some courses will also incorporate virtual and augmented reality into lesson plans.
“Lourdes is recognized as an excellent academic liberal arts university, one that allows individuals to realize their potential in a student-centered learning environment. Through the iWolf Program, Lourdes is providing a more enhanced educational experience that allows students to access materials 24/7 through technology. More importantly, our graduates will be better prepared with the knowledge and skills needed for their future careers,” said Dr. Gawelek, Lourdes University president.
An Investment in People
“Lourdes faculty have always been passionate about teaching. Through the iWolf Program, the University is investing in these dedicated individuals who will make a profound impact on students and in turn, the workforce and our communities,” said Dr. Terry M. Keller, Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The iWolf Power of Innovative Learning Program will begin in spring 2019. Twenty-five faculty will each receive a MacBook Air and iPad Pro with Smart Keyboard, Apple Pencil and case. Throughout the semester, they will train to become certified iWolf Faculty members who will integrate technology into selected first-year courses.
Experiencing the iWolf Program
In Spring 2019, Lourdes Admissions Counselors will unveil the iWolf Program Experience during high school visits, college fairs and at select sites in Ohio and Michigan.
