Teaching with technology can range from the use of video in the classroom to organizing your course in a learning management system (Blackboard); or it can grow to as much as teaching hybrid courses, creating media, websites, and having no-cost OER courses fully online.
We are here to help you find creative and effective ways to integrate technology into your classroom or online course.
Learn about this new “hands-on” cohort (Summer 2020) geared toward instructors who want to use technology such as Blackboard, multimedia, interactive tools, and more in their in-person classrooms. Details and an application will be posted Spring 2020.
Don’t forget the new E-Learning Lab where you can walk in and meet with an instructional designer.
Here you will find a comprehensive list of all digital tools and services provided to CUNY campuses.
How Can Technology Help You?
Here are just a few ways in which technology can enhance your teaching practice and promote student success:
- Provide extended access to materials
- Provide multiple material types for all learning styles
- Enhance communication between faculty and students, and between students
- Promote active learning by allowing students to own understanding and knowledge of the world through experiencing things and reflecting on those experiences
- Enhance collaborative teaching and learning
- Facilitate asynchronous and synchronous communication
- Promote higher expectations via peer review and feedback
- Provide prompt feedback to students about their academic progress
- Strengthen group collaboration
- Educators can be more productive by not having to print tests, collect homework, and organize paperwork.
