We are enthusiastic about our mission to assist faculty as they incorporate new technologies into their teaching. As technology becomes more prevalent in the education environment, it is more important than ever that pedagogically effective uses remain the focus. We aim to:
- Provide ACCESS and SUPPORT for Technology Teaching Tools
- Provide CONSULTING for Instructional Design/ Redesign
- IMPROVE the QUALITY of Online and Hybrid Courses

Our office can help you accomplish your goals when it comes to designing face-to-face, hybrid, and online learning materials, using instructional design theory and optimum technology integration. We can also provide training on the web, in person, and in workshops and online seminars in a range of products and tools, including BlackBoard Learn, Echo360, Adobe Connect, Respondus, Microsoft Office, Camtasia and Jing, Qualtrics, SafeAssign, iClickers, Bamboo Tablets, and a host of other Web 2.0 tools.
Our office also sponsors the Develop an Online Course (DOC) Grant, a terrific opportunity for you to develop a new online course with the support of our staff and other faculty. DOC Grant participants are required to participate in the BlackBoard Learn Academy, a 10-week online course, but any faculty member can participate in the Academy without signing up for the DOC Grant. Learn more about the Academy and DOC Grant here!
