An update on HyFlex teaching and faculty workshops, new classroom technology, Blackboard templates, and new Teams features.
Teaching, Learning, and Technology Center
The University’s Teaching, Learning and Technology Center (TLT Center), located in Walsh Library, provides the programs and services that support the effective use of information technology to enhance teaching and learning.
The TLT Center provides audiovisual equipment for classrooms and events, media production, and video conferencing facilities as well as training for all University-supported computer hardware and software. Available classes range from the basics of using a laptop computer through courses on all levels of Microsoft Office, the Blackboard Learning System, developing a personal web site or ePortfolio, and many other topics. The TLT Center administers several programs aimed at supporting faculty and student use of technology and infusing technology appropriately into the curriculum. One of these programs, the Curriculum Development Initiative (CDI), provides systematic support for departments integrating information technology into required core courses or course sequences.
