We would like to invite you to participate in the initial phase of research and development for a new initiative Interactive Innovations, which is being considered as a future service of Instructional Development Services within the College of Education and Human Services at Western Illinois University!

The goal of Interactive Innovations is to support the college theme, We are Community by providing an organization equipped with human support, facilities, equipment, technology and instructional support that is ready to build a community of technology users and learners that will share knowledge and information, communicate with each other, and together build learning communities and create a culture of professionalism within key areas of education and human services throughout our community.

At this time we are interested in learning what our community members want and need in terms of technology and instructional support, development and training.  Based on results, our staff will begin working with community stakeholders and University administrators, faculty, staff and students to determine programming that will help meet the needs of all of our citizens.  At the same time, we look forward to seeing how our community entities might be able to interact and share their own knowledge back to the University.

Please take a few minutes to complete our online survey instrument and distribute it, along with the attached flyer to staff, colleagues, friends, family, local organizations, and neighbors! Information provided back will assist us in designing programming and outreach events that meet both University and community needs!
