Collaborating for Change: Flexible Degrees at Portland State University

This blog entry features Portland State University’s Collaborating for Change project efforts. PSU is one of three USU institutions participating in what is known as the Frontier Set, a group of colleges, universities, state higher education systems and partner organizations collaborating to identify and implement effective practices to increase college access and degree completion.

As such, PSU is pursuing a range of innovations including advising reform, gateway courses, and digital learning.

In this vlog entry, PSU’s Sukhwant Jhaj, Vice Provost for Academic Innovation and Student Success, sits down with his colleagues, Johannes De Gruyter, Executive Director of the Office of Academic Innovation, and Geoffrey Duh, Associate Professor of Geography, to discuss the university’s Flexible Degrees initiative and specifically integrating digital learning into the classroom.
