Welcome to our Teaching with Technology website.  We hope you will find the information here useful as you explore the applications of academic technology to your teaching activities.

This site was designed to introduce faculty to the academic technologies we use at WesternU and encourage the adoption and appropriate use of such technologies to their teaching efforts. It is not intended to provide technical support for specific installation or functional issues that you may be encountering. For that kind of assistance, please visit the Employee Technical Support website or contact Technical Support directly at techsupport@westernu.edu.

On this website, the selections on the main menu bar above will provide you with access to the following:

  • Academic training and support resources for new and continuing faculty
  • Support services provided by the Department of Instructional Technology & Distributed Learning
  • Links to other sites that can provide you with technology resources and support
  • Minutes from the monthly meetings of the Academic Technology Partnership
  • A contact page with additional information about the site and suggestions for participation

Under the menu bar we have a rotating series of messages announcing the availability of recently added services and resources. Further down the screen, the main window highlights the most recent posts in each of four categories:

  • Updates
  • Features & Products
  • Best Practices, Tips & Tricks
  • Ideas & Innovations

The menu area on the right provides three different ways to access any of the posts on our site.

  • Search Box
  • Categories Menu
  • Tag Cloud

The Categories menu lists the primary technology areas used to organize the posts on the website. The Search Box or Tag Cloud can be used to access posts tagged with the selected search term, presented in chronological order.

Our posts provide the opportunity for you to contribute your own experiences, opinions and questions using the Comments feature. We encourage you to use the tools and information provided here to not only expand  your personal  teaching skills, but to help us build communities of faculty with similar interests in exploring and improving the state of art in technology-based instruction.
