Produced at the University of Florida College of Education's Office of eLearning, Technology, & Communications, this mini-doc highlights the work being done in the Institute for Advanced Learning Technologies (IALT). It was created over the course of 6 months, 13 interviews, and 30 pages of transcripts. Shaping this story and leading the post-production of the whole piece was incredibly rewarding and I'm so glad to finally share the full piece and some standout animation sequences.
We’re creating a future where educational technology meets the needs of learners everywhere. At the UF Institute for Advanced Learning Technologies, the possibilities are limitless. 

How do learners interact in this interconnected and complicated world? What is it we want to do, and how can we leverage AI to meet those needs? These are just some of the questions that drive us to push the boundaries of teaching and learning. At the Institute for Advanced Learning Technologies, researchers are pushing the boundaries, turning groundbreaking discoveries into actionable, scalable solutions. 

Together, we are creating the future. Learn more about IALT at
