Instructional Technology Department
The Instructional Technology Department blends technology and education together to help support students, faculty and staff across campus. There is a strong focus on digital mediums and new technological methods to support varied methods of instruction and learning styles.
Instructional Technology is also responsible for classroom physical space design, implementation, and documentation across campus which includes projection systems and video conferencing for hybrid and flex learning.
The Digital Humanities (DH) initiative supports students, faculty, and staff in applying computational methods to humanities research questions. Through the use of digital tools and methods, DH allows for collaboration between students and researchers to acquire new technological skills, build websites for sharing scholarship in expanded ways online, and both critique and engage with digital approaches such as text and image analysis, digital editions, mapping, digital exhibits, data wrangling, and more.

As an Instructional Designer, I help translate the technical side of educational technology and learning management systems into practical language and usage in the classroom. I also assist in helping faculty with pedagogical considerations and best practices for design, learning, and engagement. More simply: I help others in rethinking and redesigning learning experiences.
You can submit Moodle Support Requests for specific requests (like course restores).
Please be prepared with the course number, including name and section, and the assignment details if relevant.
