Academic Technology

The Academic Technology Department supports learning environments that meet the expectations of 21st-century students while still engaging students in active learning through personal connections with faculty mentors.

Technology-enhanced learning is the use of specific technologies to improve the student learning experience and the quality of stated learning outcomes regardless of whether the course delivery method is face-to-face, online, or hybrid.

Some examples of technology-enhanced learning are:

  • Online courses that are taught entirely through web-based technologies
  • Hybrid courses that are taught partly online and partly through traditional face-to-face contact
  • Online components (like tutorials, reviews, lectures) added to traditional face-to-face courses to allow the professor to use class time for hands-on, experiential, and team learning opportunities


The Academic Technology department promotes university teaching that leads to meaningful student learning. 

Our workshops focus on practical, concrete approaches for specific activities, challenges, and opportunities.  These sessions draw on research-based best practices from the teaching and learning literature and help participants consider ways of applying those best practices to their teaching.
