Innovation and creativity are hallmarks in education and are no different at Saint Mary’s. The Instructional Technology team has been hard at work to revamp training and access to support the needs of faculty and students. With the move to Canvas, Instructional Technology is working to support the Saint Mary’s community by amping up the skill set of each user to within a handful of technology tools used across the learning environments. In doing so we are proud to announce the new Instructional Technology website and will grow to encompass trainings that not only provide the technical background but are also easily accessible on any device. Check out the new site by clicking here!
The new Instructional Technology webpage (formerly EdTech) is not only advancing what is possible with training and technology tool walkthroughs, but also through how the site can be accessed. The new page is easily accessible on any device, let it be your computer, tablet, or mobile phone. The site will adapt its organization of the content to ensure you can access it whether working form home or on the go. On the new Instructional Technology webpage you can access information and trainings on the common instructional technology tools and solutions used at Saint Mary’s University. Besides trainings, there is also a research article of the month to let visitors stay current with up-and-coming trends, conversations, and tools in the higher-ed community. In addition there are links to recorded trainings, best practices in education, and a link to schedule a personalized one-on-one (or small group) training with a member of the Instructional Technology team!
Finally, the pages within the new Instructional Technology site are also being revamped with upgraded content, so be sure check back for updates. The Ally page showcases new trainings and walkthroughs that will be a consistent theme on all Instructional Technology pages. We invite you to check out the new site, and if you have any comments or feedback on the site and or what else it can offer please let us know!
