Although examples of the technology tail wagging the pedagogical dog are a dime a dozen, there are places that seem to be doing a noteworthy job of building an infrastructure that supports the use of technology in innovative teaching. The elements of such infrastructures include things like high quality training, ongoing colloquia series, two-way conversations between teachers and instructional technologists, institutional subscriptions to vetted products, release time for tooling up and content creation, and staff support for faculty teaching innovation.
A few examples that highlight various avenues:
- Technology for Teaching at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
- Technology for Education at the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence and Educational Innovation at Carnegie Mellon
- Teaching with Technology at Brown University
- Teaching with Technology Tuesdays at Yale’s Collaborative Learning Center
