The Academic Technology Department offers a robust range of technology training online and face-to-face workshop opportunities for faculty and students.
The Academic Technology Consultants (ATC) group is based locally within a range of departments, schools, and colleges across the campus, provide one-on-one training with faculty. For supported faculty, these ATCs are indispensible resources for teaching with technology, and pedagogy questions.
These workshops are held centrally by the Academic Technology trainer on a wide range of topics that impact faculty across the campus. These include iClicker pedagogical options to specific application training in SPSS and other research oriented software or other applications.
For a more informal learning opportunity, there are monthly brown bags held by either the Academic Technology Trainer, or the ATCs. These brown bags are informal discussions geared more for meeting other faculty and hearing other faculty discuss their approaches to using academic technology.
For online training opportunities, there are online interactive tutorials and Computer Based Training (CBT) using the Skillsoft CBT platform. The pedagogical format is hands-on with independent learning. This CBT training is accessible through CUConnect. The topic areas generally focus on office applications (MS Word, MS Excel, MS Powerpoint) and some web or multi-media applications (Dreamweaver and Photoshop).
For students there are Student Computing Classes, offering beginning and advanced topics in computing on campus. Generally, these topics include office applications and some web development (Dreamweaver, NVU).
