Classroom technology training available for instructors

August 24, 2015 — 

You may notice that classrooms at the U of M look a little different these days.

Classrooms now offer diverse technological options to support faculty and instructors in the classroom and to enhance students’ learning experience, with everything from large, flat-panel monitors to HD projectors to interactive PCs.

The new and improved classroom technology is part of the a project called the Learning Technology Improvements Project (LTI) through Information Services and Technology and Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL). The project supports exceptional student experience at the U of M through the delivery of audio/visual technology into high-demand teaching spaces that supports and enhances the learning experience.

The project scope also directly supports the U of M Strategic Plan 2015-2020, under its first strategic priority of “Inspiring minds through innovative and quality teaching.”

The goal of the LTI project is to provide students with flexible learning opportunities in a variety of delivery modes that make the best use of available classroom and online learning technologies and resources. Specifically, the project scope will install AV technology in teaching spaces that currently do not have any permanent installations of A/V technology.

Faculty members and instructors can participate in training sessions that will take place this week and next. No registration is required.

    What about Bannatyne? The College of Rehabilitation Sciences has had 6 giant monitors installed, which will be used by students and faculty, so it would be nice to know how to connect and the different possible features this equipment offers.
