Tech Library Rationale

 

During the Spring semester of 2016, the CTE piloted a program called Just-in-Time Teaching & Technology (JiTTT) Grants and the goal of this grant program is to reduce the barriers for faculty acquiring needed materials or technology for their classrooms. 

When reviewing applications from faculty, we were able to identify a pattern of technologies that were being requested. However, we also identified that frequently faculty were not sure of how they would deploy the equipment in their classrooms. 

We believe that making that equipment available for on a loan basis and having an Instructional Designer
work directly with them to intentionally use those technologies to transform their classrooms would improve teaching and learning on campus. 

Thanks to a President's Partners Grant we were awarded funds to create a Tech Library. All faculty are encouraged to check out any of the available tech items for the semester and by doing so, they agree to work with a CTE Instructional Designer to rethink at least 3 classroom activities to incorporate that technology and improve the teaching and learning experience in their classrooms.
