ABOUT US

The Office of Digital Learning is here to collaborate with faculty on the creation and evaluation of effective instructional approaches and meaningful online learning experiences.

We regularly consult with instructors about new and existing instructional technologies, pedagogical strategies, and reviewing courses for optimal learning. We assist with the framing of an instructor’s ideas for their class and help them understand what is possible with the instructional technology tools available. We share best practices and evidence-based strategies that promote active learning, engagement, and enhance learning in all environments, but particularly those occurring online. As part of our practice, we also regularly participate in professional development, attend and present at regional and national conferences, and are members of several consortia.

Please use these contacts to seek any type of online instructional/eClass support:
