Announcement (August 24, 2021): The KNILT mini-courses are freely available to all educators, who can view/read without needing to login. Currently only users who are associated with our programs/projects at the University at Albany can request accounts for creating/editing pages. If you are not associated with UAlbany but would like to create a mini-course here, please contact Dr. Jianwei Zhang.  (More... Archived announcements)


Overview

Welcome to KNILT, an open online knowledge space where educators can find, share, and develop new ideas to reform and improve education for the 21st century contexts.

There is a growing demand for schools to continually improve and innovate in order to better prepare students for productive careers and social lives in a rapidly changing world. The Knowledge Network for Innovations in Learning and Teaching (KNILT) project, directed by Dr. Jianwei Zhang, is an open knowledge network created by/for educators to share and advance our collective know-how/know-why about productive learning in the 21st century.

A core group of contributors in this wiki-based network are graduate students in the Department of Educational Theory and Practice at the University at Albany (e.g. students in ETAP 623 Systematic Design of Instruction). Our contributors share expertise as teachers and instructors, teacher educators, curriculum coordinators/developers, instructional technologists and designers, online learning specialists, and other professionals. Our goal is to use our knowledge of learning, teaching, and technology to produce a suite of professional development resources and opportunities. Since its inception in September 2007, KNILT has accumulated more than 550 mini-courses, which have been created using systematic processes of learning design.

Efforts are made to further extend this network to a broader community of teachers who are committed to educational innovation. The open resources and interactions in this network will support teachers' learning, collaboration, and inquiry as they explore new visions and practices to meet the 21st century needs. See KNILT:About for more information about the history, development, and outreach of the KNILT site.
