Project Technology

This year, we are following five faculty members as they work towards integrating appropriate technology into their classes. This project is a "take off" of the popular reality TV program, Project Runway, which appears on the Bravo TV Channel. For our "project" we followed faculty members as they undertook a four-part challenge: 1) to integrate appropriate technology into their teaching and learning activities, 2) to engage students, 3) to improve learning, and 4) to document their results. Basically we took the TV camera into their offices and
into their classrooms. Some of the initial faculty issues that have arisen include: Time, Help & Support, Environments,IT Infrastructure, and Teaching Styles. To view a Mediasite presentation of this program go to:
