Guiding Principles

  • We believe when used appropriately and strategically, technology can make your teaching and your students’ learning more effective.
  • We encourage student-centered teaching and learning practices and believe technology can assist you and your students in reaching that goal.
  • We believe any use of technology in educational settings should be guided by the appropriate pedagogy or teaching strategies.
  • We believe the selection and use of technology for instructional purposes should be based on the need and learning outcomes or learning objectives. We do not support using technology for its own sake, or for entertainment.
  • We believe faculty, staff and student learning communities can help foster a campus-wide culture of teaching and learning with technology that further enhances the students’ learning experience.

About the Teaching with Technology Program

The CETL Teaching with Technology program was originally piloted in the 2008 Fall semester.  Since then, the program has gone through several changes and expansions and evolved into a program that provides pedagogical and technical support services for the integration of technology into teaching and learning.

Additionally the Teaching with Technology program has provided consultation and support on the development of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning research projects on technology integration into teaching.

Digital Storytelling Resources

CETL has been supporting digital storytelling through a number of projects over recent years. Digital stories combine elements such as audio narration, still images, video clips onscreen text, and music to tell stories, usually in a movie file of less than five minutes. Digital stories created by both faculty and students are being used in higher education.

CETL has production resources to help facilitate digital story development and production as an initiative towards excellence in teaching and learning. Digital stories are created by faculty to supplement a lesson, unit, or course or to provide students and potential majors with a personal viewpoint on a discipline.
