ITS supports faculty in a number of ways. Find out about our support areas by visiting its.uncg.edu
We provide consultations on designing and developing quality face-to-face, hybrid, “flipped,” and online courses. We will leverage current educational technology to help instructors reach their teaching goals.
Our team works with instructors to create, re-design, or adapt courses that accomplish course goals as defined by the instructor. Our team is composed of professionals who not only specialize in creating efficient, effective, and engaging course experiences but are well-versed in pedagogical principles.
You may also contact your departmental Academic Technology Specialist (ATS) or submit an ITS Training Request to receive personalized training.
When we think about personalized learning, we might consider one-on-one tutoring as the ideal. The tutor is actively responding to the student’s performance, providing more practice and support where necessary and moving on quickly when the student is demonstrating mastery. Adaptive learning tools use technology to replicate this at scale. We can use them to design learning paths that meet students where they’re at.
A student whose answer to a question reveals their misconception is provided with content that corrects it immediately and is then provided with additional practice so that the correct thinking solidifies. A student who is demonstrating mastery is able to move swiftly through the module, rather than working through the same 20 problems as everyone else. Data analytics allow you to identify where students are struggling, allowing you to optimize the time you have with them.
We currently support:
Active Learning Classrooms
We have several Active Learning Classrooms or ALCs on campus. These classrooms come equipped with a variety of available tools, such as mobile furniture, digital displays, whiteboards, and projection. Teaching in one of the ALCs requires additional focus on the intersection between learning objectives, instructional activities, and assessments. You can learn more about teaching strategies by going to the following resource.
Panopto is a video platform that offers faculty the ability to capture their lectures at UNCG. ITS Classroom Technology is currently implementing learning spaces with the necessary hardware and software for the Fall semester.
