Learning Technologies

 The Learning Technologies staff offices are located on the first floor of Steinmetz Hall, within the Learning Technologies and Environments suite in room 110.

Faculty interested in discussing ideas and/or who need assistance utilizing technologies within instruction and/or research should send an email to helpdesk@union.edu requesting Learning Technology support. This support includes such things as one-on-one technology consultations and trainings (e.g., Nexus, Blogs, Clickers, Lecture Capture, etc.), assistance with integrating technology within learning activities, and utilizing the IBM Intelligent Cluster within research and/or instruction.  

Learning Technologies staff can consult with faculty on a variety of  teaching strategies and technologies. A few of the areas of expertise of our Learning Technologies staff are highlighted below. However, if you aren't sure what you need, all you need to do is contact the Learning Technologies staff at helpdesk@union.edu and we'd be happy to help you reconceptualize your instructional design into engaging and meaningful learning experiences for your students!

In addition, Learning Technologies staff and a small Learning Technology Student Consultant (LTSC) team work with alumni of the Faculty Development Institute (FDI) to help faculty rethink and redesign learning experiences that provide more opportunities for learners to make their thinking visible and demonstrate mastery through transfer and application of conceptual understandings to new, authentic situations. The LTSC team offers direct assistance to students asked to leverage digital media and technologies within assignments by providing proactive coaching and support including in-class demos, one-on-one consultations, individual feedback, custom handouts, video tutorials, and other digital resources (e.g., mini-web sites, aggregating customized resources, etc.).  For more information, please visit the LTSC Website.
