Home / Teaching with Tech


Technology enhances pedagogy in a variety of ways including adding interactivity to a lecture, creating spaces for group work, and expanding student capacity for creativity and research. Whether you are teaching online, hybrid or in-person courses, innovative tools help students learn, improve teaching effectiveness, and even create efficient excellence. To use it well requires purposeful implementation and careful planning.  Here are some technologies to explore and resources to help you adapt them to give students choices in how they present their knowledge.
