We're the Office of Learning Innovation (OLI) at LIM College. Our tiny team includes Deepa Rao-Sisario (Director), Chu Cheung (Instructional Designer) and four OLI Faculty Liaisons: Dr. Nicole Kirpalani (Fashion Merchandising and Marketing), Leonora Loeb (Visual Studies), Christina Neubrand (Arts and Sciences), and Shelly Nicholas (Business).


We support faculty in providing the best experiences for their students. Feel free to reach out to the OLI for 1:1 support with course and assessment design and technology training.

Course Development

We work with Academic Departments to build pedagogically sound and engaging online courses.

Workshops & Training

We also offer pedagogical workshops  and technology training for all new and returning faculty to help improve or hone teaching and technology skills.
