Instructional Technologist With the belief that our growth as a teaching and learning community requires a vibrant, collaborative support system capable of turning innovative teaching ideas into exciting realities, the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship's Instructional Technologist offers one-on-one consultations.
These conversations start by working to understand the faculty member's goals, teaching context, and underlying pedagogical questions. The Instructional Technologist continues to support faculty as they brainstorm, view examples, and generate and experiment with new tools and techniques. Follow-up sessions are available to faculty as they work to implement their ideas and meet their teaching goals.
Examples of faculty consultation goals have included:
Using Blackboard to enhance course organization, structure and learning material accessibility
Using Blackboard for online and blended course design
Using collaborative technologies—e.g. Blogs—to promote active student participation in and reflection on social justice issues
Using ePortfolio for assessment and feedback Increasing student participation and engagement Integrating problem-based learning strategies
Using Wiggins & McTighe's backward design process for course development
