The Centre for Academic Innovation (CAI) is De Montfort University’s hub for developments in pedagogic praxis and associated practical research.
CAI supports and disseminates teaching and learning good practice across the university and beyond, and our aim is to become a world-leading centre of pedagogic and academic innovation and excellence, with a focus on enhancing and disrupting the learning and teaching experience.
At DMU, CAI promotes academic innovation projects and provides information, advice, and guidance for this and other forms of pedagogical support. CAI explores, supports and facilitates best practice in the transformation of assessment, learning and curriculum development. We encourage and facilitate enhancement, engagement, and transformational thinking and activities within the teaching and learning experience, supporting pedagogic innovation and providing leadership.
