Instructional & Learning Technology
The Instructional & Learning Technology group introduces, helps maintain, and collaboratively envisions technology that augments or enhances teaching and learning at Whitman. We take a broad view of how technology can do this, engaging with faculty and students in the use of technology that is "simple" (e.g. basic word processing) and "complex" (e.g. virtual reality applications). Our activities include: partnering with faculty on technology components for a class assignments and grant proposals, investigating different pedagogical applications of technology, and supporting computational lab spaces. In addition, our Instructional Multimedia Services (IMS) sub-group maintains technology-enhanced learning spaces, supports technology for events, and provides some equipment check out (learn more by contacting IMS at email@example.com)
