Abstract: This study tries to come up with an innovative way of teaching to move one step further toward a more open, sharing, creative and collaborative environment for learning. It is an on-going project about developing and implementing a teaching innovation for a software-oriented course in higher education. The participants include thirty-eight students enrolling in the sophomore level course of “Digital Design” and the instructor, who has seven years teaching experiences in the field. The innovative method is developed and introduced with implementation procedures. Comments and suggestions were collected and documented from the teacher’s notes and reflections and the online discussions posted by the students. Replications of this study with action research or case study methodology are expected in future research. In recognition of how difficult and slow-paced a change process might be, this study shares a pleasant innovative teaching experience. It is hoped that more examples of practice in various subjects will be stimulated.
