Curricular technology support is built on the idea that technical staff consult and connect faculty with the appropriate technology to support their teaching. Through our liaison model, this is accomplished through one-on-one consultation, connecting faculty to appropriate technology resources and resource providers, developing custom solutions, and co-teaching technology workshops.


Specialty technology exists all over campus from the Sciences to Media to the Library. Your liaison can help you figure out what resources exist and where, and point you in the right direction to find the most appropriate technology to fit your teaching needs. Listed below are the primary enterprise-wide technology resources available to faculty to support their teaching.
