The Academic Technology Training Center, located in Bunting Center room 201, is led by Paul Iwancio-Director of Instructional Technology and Advancement, part of the Department of Academic Services.
The purpose of this office is to provide consultation and direct support to faculty in the effective use of current and emerging technologies in the curriculum.
This is accomplished by:
- Delivering faculty training in the use of academic technology
- Giving consultation on selection of academic technology
- Providing advice on effective instructional design
- Facilitating peer-to-peer collaboration in technology
- Showcasing faculty use of technology
- Advocating for adoption of new academic technologies
- Developing models for implementation of instructional technology
- Assisting in the design and delivery of blended/hybrid courses
- Providing training in Moodle
As part of these efforts, watch for announcements relating to new developments on Paul's blog called "Technology Is Not a Four Letter Word". The office will sponsor faculty presentations on best practices for technology implementation, create collaborative online spaces, and through the help of the Academic Technology Committee, help plan for smart technology use and growth at MICA. In addition to these collaborative efforts, you may schedule an appointment for hands-on one-on-one training, and consultation. Paul Iwancio's direct phone line is 410-225-2506.
