Drawing from practices created to support global competitiveness and collaboration; the Instructional Innovation Incubator (i3) academy for online treaching was intentionally designed to cross pedagogical, geographical and institutional borders. In this interactive paper session, facilitators describe the i3 model, provide the results of a three-year pilot study designed to measure its effectiveness, engage participants in the evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of developing supra-institutional models of educational development; and challenge participants to consider how the i3 model might apply to on-line teaching and learning at their own campuses, systems, or states.
