Academic Technology Consultation

Academic technologists are available to help faculty and staff explore how to effectively incorporate technology into their academic practice to advance their teaching, research, and outreach goals. We offer expertise in instructional design and teaching strategies that can be applied to common good technologies like our course management system (Moodle), video conferencing, media production, social networking technologies, evaluation and assessment of educational technologies, and more. 

The service includes:

  • Conducting one-on-one and small-group consultation on academic technology questions related to using technology to enhance student learning and faculty research
  • Engaging the University community proactively in workshop series and events about integrating academic technology into practice
  • Developing and disseminating effective technology-rich teaching practices
  • Providing recommendations regarding technology selection and how to use technology to improve learning outcomes and/or course management
  • Providing advice and recommendations for evaluating the effective use of academic technology (and disseminating results of academic technology innovations)
  • Consulting on grant applications that incorporate academic technology
