The Educational Technology Department (EdTech) supports faculty and instructional staff with their instructional design and delivery, video and audio media production, and content management.  We are committed to finding, testing, implementing, and integrating innovative learning tools and technologies that:

  • Enhance your teaching,
  • Increase student engagement,
  • Improve feedback, collaboration, and co-creation—both with students and colleagues, and
  • Provide better—and more accessible—visual, audio, interactive, and blended learning experiences.

We help you use the latest learning tools and technologies to deliver compelling content, design engaging learning activities, and more effectively assess your students. We provide tech support, regularly scheduled workshops, and one-on-one consultations. And in collaboration with IT, we can also coordinate pilots of educational technologies, advise on the adoption of classroom technologies, and set up specific training for your department or other group.

EdTech Advisors assist faculty and instructional staff in the development and delivery of technology-enhanced courses. Advisors are available for one-on-one consultations, demonstrations, and workshops and can help customize instruction for specific needs.

EdTech Instructional Assistants help faculty and instructional employees with technical questions related to the use of educational technologies in courses.

We are always happy to help you find the right tools for your teaching experiences, and we support the following technologies and activities:

  • learning management system for courses (see Brightspace links on the right)
  • blogging (iWeb and CourseWeb)
  • web conferencing and virtual classroom tools (Zoom)
  • screencasting, streaming, and presentation tools (Kaltura MediaSpace)
  • video management and production
