If you have questions or need help with any of Manhattanville’s teaching technology solutions, the Office of Instructional Technology offers various resources ready to assist.
Contact the Instructional Technologists for support in meeting your teaching goals by using Manhattanville’s instructional technology solutions. Discover strategies in course design in either Blackboard or Digication, discuss student work assessment options, and explore how to engage students through multimedia, ePortfolio, discussions, blogs, journals, and more.
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 Office of Instructional Technology 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
