Technology and media are constantly evolving and becoming ever more central to supporting and enabling learning. The adaptation of technologies can have meaningful effects on both the teaching and learning experience, and can bring gains in efficiency and effectiveness for both teacher and student. When we find ways to innovate with technology and incorporate new platforms in educational content, we have the opportunity to enhance teaching methods and also help empower student’s success in their future professional lives.
Utilizing Creative Tools to Enhance Teaching
GW has partnered with Adobe to become an Adobe Creative Campus. Many universities of this select group are located in the United States, with others located across the world. Together, we are providing opportunities for the GW community to utilize the range of Adobe Creative Cloud tools to unleash creative communications, create new approaches to doing science, and chart innovative ways of leveraging Adobe's technologies in the classroom. To support this, the Strategic Digital Learning Initiatives (SDLI) team provides pedagogical guidance, design expertise and technical support for using these tools to enhance communications and teaching.

Digital Fluency Initiatives
As part of our efforts to empower GW faculty's use of digital tools – particularly the Adobe Creative Cloud – in teaching, the SDLI unit organizes, operates, and partners with GW faculty to provide unique digital teaching opportunities. These initiatives are guided by the central goals of elevating faculty digital literacy and taking acquired skills further into digital fluency.
In partnership with Professor Sylvain Guiriec of the GW Physics Department, we run a one-on-one collaboration each major term with faculty in the computations, engineering, and natural sciences to ideate, design, develop, and prototype innovative approaches to using Adobe Creative Cloud for doing science.
