Abstract

The University Libraries and the Center for Teaching and Learning have closely aligned goals regarding the use of technology in service of research, teaching and learning.  The former Title III lab, Library 110, is now a research and educational technology exploration space that continues “to develop technology expertise and support for existing and new media within the academic sector, and encourage broader adoption by teaching faculty” as outlined in the Repositioning Plan  (August 2011). Having created LibGuides on the using emerging information and communication technologies (ICTs), we offered Library ICT workshops and follow-up 1:1 sessions to students, faculty, administrators and staff to enhance learning, pedagogy, and research.  The ICT tools we featured in workshops were chosen in consultation with former Title 3 cohorts, and the workshops were designed to promote technologies and skills that enhance both face-to-face and online learning. Technology workshops were also part of a CTL professional development certificate program for Faculty and graduate students.  Our presentation covers the results from the inaugural year.
