Partnering with faculty to explore opportunities for innovation in technology integration
Academic technology integration to support pedagogical goals and enhance the learning experience for faculty and students involves a partnership between the Office of Academic Technology (OAT) and interested professors. Each semester, three or four pilot projects are supported that explore the possibilities of innovation in Westmont's face to face, residential academic environment. In most cases, the project begins with a query or idea from a professor that leads to further discussion and planning. This is a process where the OAT takes the initial goal and concept, researches and tests the project technology and then enables the faculty member to use the tool. Tech support and strategic planning that involves the professor, students and the OAT continues throughout the project. Assessment and reporting also are done in partnership with the OAT.Click on this link to view the projects that we are working on.
