Description: Technology continues to shape the teaching and learning landscape in higher education. Things like software tools, learning management systems, and web-based resources have opened new opportunities for collaboration, content creation and learning that were unimaginable only a short time ago. With an ever increasing set of options, selecting technology tools that best support specific instructional practices and learning goals can be challenging. This session is designed to provide participants with an introduction to the technology resources available at VCU to support teaching and learning. In addition, participants will discuss perspectives they have about the role technology plays in teaching and learning, and consider a research-based set of guidelines for making decisions about teaching with technology. Faculty members should leave this session with a better sense of how to make decisions to use technology in their teaching, and where they can turn for resources and support as they continue exploring.
