The Center for Learning and Technology provides leadership and expertise in leveraging technology to support the academic mission of the College. The Center focuses on thoughtful and effective use of technology to improve the teaching and learning experience. We also implement needs analysis and training in how best to leverage technology for faculty, academic support and academic administrative services.


More specifically, we provide instructional design support for faculty who are developing blended, hybrid or online courses. We offer training and support for faculty using the learning management system (Canvas) as well as publisher tools and web based educational technology. The Center also promotes awareness of new technologies on the horizon that may impact the learning and teaching experience. In short, the Center for Learning and Technology helps faculty use technology to enhance the environment in which learning occurs.
