Teaching and Learning with educational technologies

“The challenge now for institutions is not whether or how much technology to use but how to use technology in ways that are consonant with institutional culture and identity to help students succeed ...”  ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2014

The Digital Learning Team collaborate with faculty to develop skills and experience, and enhance competence and confidence with digital pedagogies and educational technology.
