A Message from Carlos Jensen,
Associate Vice Chancellor – Educational Innovation

photo-of-carlosAt UC San Diego, innovation is in our DNA. Whether we’re pushing the frontiers of science, engineering, and human expression, or developing and delivering innovative world-class educational experiences to empower the next generation to change the world. 

The Office for Educational Innovation (EI) is here to help you research, develop, and ultimately implement innovative curriculum and educational programs, whether that takes the form of new courses, new teaching modalities, finding ways to reach new audiences, or whole new program types altogether. 

EI recognizes that developing new programs from concept through approval and implementation is hard work. Program development often requires long-term commitment that can interfere with other faculty commitments, and resources that individual faculty or departments don’t always have access to.  EI is here to help you develop your vision and bring it to fruition.  

EI works with individual faculty, departments, or entire divisions. We provide trainings, workshops and opportunities to share and shape ideas at an early stage. We can provide competitive analyses, market research, survey constituents, identify and bring together both internal and external partners, provide project management, budget analysis, and help with identifying funding and support options. 

If you have a vision, contact us and we’ll help guide you to success!
