Teaching with Technology Curriculum


The Teaching with Technology Curriculum is designed to help faculty creatively integrate technology with instructing. Short colloquia and one-day seminars fall into three overlapping categories:

  1. best practices teaching with a learning management system
  2. course design mediated by the Quality Matters program, and
  3. teaching innovations


The goal of this ten course curriculum aims to promote retention by enhancing faculty aptitude for teaching in a rapidly changing classroom environment. The curriculum focuses on three areas:

  • A sophisticated understanding of the features, educational possibilities and operations of the learning management system (Blackboard)
  • How good course design – inspired by the Quality Matters program -- improves teaching and learning
  • An exploration of various teaching innovations including use of social media, free educational resources (textbooks, videos, presentations etc.), and active learning, a technique for involving students in their own education.

With a more complete understanding of the learning software, course design and recent innovations faculty will be better prepared to help 21st century students gain the education they need to complete their educations and compete successfully in the workplace.

The Center for Teaching with Technology (CTT), located in room 120k of the Cheng Library, is focused on providing dynamic consultation in pedagogy and technology and offering instructional design and development services for faculty members at William Paterson University.
