It Takes a Village: Boosting Faculty Instructional Technology Use

Thursday, January 29 | 11:30AM–1:00PM | Marina Ballroom D
Session Type: Professional Development
There is no panacea when it comes to the 2014 #3 IT issue, assisting faculty with the instructional integration of information technology. It takes a village to address this considerable challenge—multiple individuals, departments, and divisions working together and promoting a consistent message of technology adoption, use, and innovation. By partnering with the library, faculty development, a faculty-led Digital Learning Initiative group, and others across campus to deliver workshops, create grant opportunities, and implement other "teaching with technology"–focused programs, St. Norbert College's IT has effectively moved faculty along the technology adoption life cycle and boosted the use of instructional technology in the classroom.

OUTCOMES: Recognize the importance of taking a multipronged approach * Explore effective strategies/programs for boosting technology use * Identify partners and programs to grow faculty technology use
