How can you integrate technology into your classroom in a productive way? Who better to ask than our students!

In our 2018 Academic Technology Survey, we asked 421 CU Boulder students to tell us the most important thing that teachers should know in order to better support their learning with technology. The most commonly cited suggestions were:

  1. Be flexible
  2. Use technology to engage and include students
  3. Be prepared
  4. Permit the use of laptops in the classroom
  5. Make course content available online

More than half of the survey respondents were from the College of Arts & Sciences. Check out the interactive visual linked below for more findings from the survey.

For assistance with implementing technology in your teaching activities, contact to schedule a one-on-one consultation or to request a presentation or workshop for a group. ASSETT services are available at no charge to Arts & Sciences faculty, staff, and graduate students with instructional duties.
