Learning Technology Consultation
Our training staff can assist faculty to identify technology tools to enhance teaching and learning and implement them effectively whether teaching face-to-face, hybrid, or completely online.
Our Learning Technology Consultants can meet with faculty individually to discuss technology needs and recommend or research products that are pedagogically relevant. They work closely with CETL and can refer faculty to other LTS staff as necessary. Part of their job is to research new technologies and review them, so if they don't know about a technology for teaching and learning, they can learn!
