This research project will utilize both qualitative and quantitative approaches to gather data on current learning, teaching, research, and engagement practices related to the 3.0 Model across four (4) Academies. This data will then be analyzed to identify patterns, best practices, opportunities for further development, and concerns to be addressed if the 3.0 Model is to be successful. This analysis will then be used to improve practices at XJTLU, build a theoretical model to underpin the concept of educational ecosystems, create outputs to share with interested parties (including other educational institutions), and begin or further dialogue in the higher education space about the concepts and applications of educational ecosystems.
