Even as we seek to increase quality and serve more students, we must pursue new ways to be more productive.

Our path is one of consecration and deeper knowledge of the processes of learning and teaching.

There is great power on that path—power to weather adversity, power to extend the resources of the Church, and power to more effectively realize the mission of the university.

We will discover and implement new ways to lower the cost of providing a BYU–Idaho education through the following objectives:

Objective 1: Leverage new and existing resources to educate a growing student body

At BYU–Idaho, we are literally rethinking every aspect of a university education.

Online learning and the year-round academic calendar are just two areas where we are already making better use of resources for a growing student body.

We must learn to use new technologies and develop methods, materials, programs, and concepts that can be effectively and efficiently applied to our students on and off our campus.

This effort is critical in leveraging and maximizing the significant resources the Church currently directs toward BYU–Idaho.

We will learn more about delivering a high-quality education at a relatively low cost and increase our capacity to do so as we:
 

Objective2: Develop innovative, cost-efficient learning and teaching methods.

We must develop innovative, cost-efficient learning and
teaching methods.

We must find new ways of doing things that allow us to accomplish more with less while producing a higher quality experience.

This requires us to rethink teaching norms and traditional education morays.


As we pursue the development of innovative, cost-efficient learning and teaching methods, we will:
 

  • Create Faculty Learning Fellowships (3 and 6 credit hour and one semester release time opportunities).

  • Develop and disseminate innovative and cost-efficient methods for teaching and learning.

  • Produce and distribute innovative and cost-effective teaching materials.

  • Train faculty on new teaching methods and materials.

  • Award scholarships for students participating in the development of teaching methods.

  • Support institutional research and testing of new teaching methods.

  • Institute periodic faculty conferences that generate exchange of ideas and practices (e.g., Spori Summit).
