Instructional Support

Educational Technology

The Center for Teaching and Learning works directly with faculty members and academic departments to analyze self-identified instruction problems and then research technologies that may be introduced to address this issue. This includes researching possible solutions, organizing pilots of the technology in live class settings, evaluating its effectiveness and the licensing of the product. Training and on-going support is also part of the process. The Center for Teaching and Learning also provides on-going training and support on all principal educational technologies including Desire2Learn, video capture and distribution, virtual classrooms and video conferencing, and other related collaborative technologies. To learn more about Ed Tech at SRU or schedule training, call the CTL Educational Technology Support team at 724.738.4220 or email us at edtech@sru.edu.

Instructional Design and Course Development

The Center for Teaching and Learning leverages expertise in learning theory, the principles of instructional design, and national standards of best practice to collaborate with faculty members to develop high-quality learning activities that maximize student engagement and promote academic success. This service usually takes the form of reoccurring, collaborative one-one-on consultations between the faculty member and the instructional designer. CTL also prepares faculty members to serve as internal Quality Matters peer reviewers and coordinates the peer review process.
