Finding New Ways to Integrate Technology in the Classroom by Facilitating Faculty Innovation
iKnow 2.0 is more than just MacBooks, iPads and software applications. It’s faculty and students using technology to collaborate, engage, and enhance the learning process, both in and outside the classroom. Faculty supported by instructional technologists from the Center for Instructional Innovation and iLearn help to facilitate innovation in teaching and learning.
The iLearn Program
The iLearn Program supports the objectives of iKnow 2.0 by providing the resources and training necessary to integrate technology into the pedagogy of faculty. Not only does iLearn provide resources and training, it also measures the impact of technology integration on student learning outcomes. The successes achieved by faculty and students participating in the iLearn program will be shared and implemented campus-wide.
The Center for Instructional Innovation (CII) works continually to introduce faculty and students to innovative technologies in teaching and learning. The CII provides resources, training and support to faculty and students. These efforts help to achieve the objectives of iKnow 2.0.
