The mission of the Office of Teaching and Learning Technologies is to support faculty in the thoughtful and creative integration of instructional technologies in teaching and learning at Providence College.
TLT offers both face-to-face and remote consultations to help support the following technologies:
- Sakai Learning Management System
- Canvas Learning Management System
- Learning Technology Integrations (i.e. TopHat, Perusall, Gradescope, etc.)
- Zoom Video Conferencing
- Teaching modality consultations (i.e. hybrid, hyflex, or remote teaching)
- Learning Technology Hardware (i.e. Lightboard, Active Learning classrooms, etc.)
For more information regarding classroom technology in your assigned classroom, see iHelp.
To arrange for a consultation, please email email@example.com.
Hands-on workshops are generally offered in mid-August through early September, mid-January, and the week after Commencement.
The Office of Teaching and Learning Technologies occasionally co-sponsors one to two events during the semester with the Center for Teaching Excellence to offer technology workshops for faculty. See Center for Teaching Excellence Events.
The department maintains a small supply of iPads for faculty to borrow throughout the semester.
Many faculty are incorporating multimedia into student projects. The office can work with you to develop a video assignment. Students have access to Macs with iMovie in Academic Media Services and the Phillips Memorial Library for editing work.
Audience Response Tools and Training
Our current audience response tool is TopHat, a bring-your-own-device tool for students. Results can be linked to each student for grading purposes. This office provides the software for using TopHat, as well as consultation on how and why to use them in your class. To learn more visit our TopHat FAQ.
Our main office is located at Feinstein 306. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in advance if you would like to drop by for a consultation.
