Technology Integration Observation Request
Wield the tool of technology! Albion College has numerous technologies available to aid professors with student learning and engagement including blog sites, online forums, lecture capture, and even mobile learning initiatives.
In IT, we love technology. But it is our opinion that professors are the ones who have the biggest impact. The technology we offer is simply the aide.
If you're interested in having an instructional technologist observe a session of your course and suggest technologies that aid your lessons and teaching style, fill out the form below.
Once your request is submitted, the Instructional Technologist will attend your course at their earliest convenience and schedule a follow-up meeting. Keep in mind, we're just there to see how technology works with your style.
