What we do?
Instructional technology consultants (ITCs) support faculty in developing diverse pedagogical strategies for promoting 21st century student skills in information literacy, collaboration, and reflective practice through:
- one-to-one consultations,
- project instruction (face-to-face and online) and
- follow-up support.
Additionally, we provide support for:
- the design and implementation of surveys for HHS faculty research and institutional program evaluation.
Why we do it?
“Educators must work together to ensure that every American young person has access to the skills and experiences needed to become a full participant, can articulate their understanding of how media shapes perceptions, and has been socialized into the emerging ethical standards that should shape their practices as media makers and participants in online communities.” (Jenkins 2009 pp. 3-4)

How People Learn
Given the amount of information available in a variety of formats, “learning strategy shifts from a focus on information as such to judgment concerning reliable information…” “In short, learning is shifting from learning that to learning how, from content to process.” (Davidson & Goldberg 2010, p. 55)
