Learning Technologies

Technology has enabled us to teach students in new and exciting ways, we are able to offer experiences that were never possible in the past. Simulations, virtual reality, and collaborative applications are making it easier than ever before for students to explore concepts in interesting and engaging ways. Although technology is widely available, it can be difficult to determine the right tool for the job. The following resources will help you learn about various options available on campus and give you strategies for implementing them into your teaching.

We here at CETL often say “technology should never be a barrier to learning.”  The same can be said for teaching. Knowing how to use the technology included in the on-campus classrooms can make an instructor feel much more comfortable teaching in front of large groups of students.  The resources below will help ensure that you have all the information you need to effectively use the devices available.
