Abstract
One year ago, Michigan State University (MSU) started a new campus initiative: The Hub for Innovation in Teaching & Learning (“The Hub”).  The Hub’s mission is to “facilitate the passion and inventiveness of students, faculty, staff, and stakeholders both inside and outside of MSU to create, identify, and accelerate new ways to collaborate, learn, research, and deliver instruction.”  While the core staff of The Hub is quite small, many on campus are working with and through the
Hub.  To facilitate this campus change, the Hub leadership team has anchored much of its “getting started” work and processes to sound design theories and processes. One technique which has proven successful in sharing our work openly and strategically is "scrum" - a framework for project development.   In this session, I will share the scrum process along with other lessons learned from our first year as a campus entity.
