EdTech assists faculty, students and staff in the use of technology for teaching and learning. The department supports a number of enterprise technologies (e.g., MyLearningSpace, iClicker, Adobe Connect, Turnitin.com) but also explores new technologies to examine their potential for use in teaching. While the work of the department is in large part technical, the focus is pedagogical – looking at desired outcomes, and then determining if a technology can help achieve them. The mandate of Educational Technologies is to:
Educational Technologies staff provide support for technologies that support and enhance the teaching and learning experience at Laurier.
Need help with an aspect of MyLearningSpace?
Workshops, drop-in hours and training sessions are offered each term by the Educational Technologies team.
