Areas of consultation include:

  • Instructional design assistance for effectively teaching with technology

Who can use it?

If you are a faculty member or graduate teaching fellow interested in using technology in a course, you can request a consultation with one of our technologists. We can consult with you about technologies that you would like to use yourself or technologies that your students would use. We can help you think about effective uses of presentation software, Classes*v2, course websites, blogs, wikis, mobile technologies, audio and video projects, and many others. Consultations frequently include a librarian who can advise on research education, eReserves, and other resources.

If you are a student, we can advise you on the production of digital assignments, digital audio and video, blogs, and the use of other technologies for coursework.
