Technology, Innovation, and Pedagogy Services
The Information Technology Division's (ITD) instructional support team is available to assist faculty in the use of technology in the teaching / learning arena. Whether that involves best practices in using technology for encouraging active learning, how to set up a gradebook in D2L, deciding what technology tool would work best to meet a desired learning outcome, support in doing a SoTL research project, and more, the team would be happy to help.
