Run by the Academic Support unit in the Office of Information Technology, this
classroom is devoted to
supporting University faculty in their use of information technology. The
Instructional Technology and OIT short courses are held
here. They not only provide faculty with the necessary skills and
experience to use technology well, but faculty mentors also demonstrate
proven classroom techniques and innovative ways in which technology can
improve teaching and learning.
