CEHD's tech support for faculty, students highlighted in MN Daily
University students nationally are discovering that classroom technology helps them, but only if instructors make effective use of it, according to an article in the Minnesota Daily. And that is why CEHD is providing ongoing tech support for faculty, says Director of Academic Technology Services David Ernst.
Anytime an instructor needs help with an iPad, video presentation, or course website, the college ensures they get what they need, Ernst says in the article. "It's not just about technology. It's about better teaching and learning, and helping students," he says. "Technology is just the tool."
The Daily article notes that of more than 6,000 students polled across 36 university campuses, 77 percent of students said their grades improved through web-based course material and online classroom managing sites, according to the National Lone Star Report on Aligning Technology with Student Success.The survey showed that the positive results were strongly tied to proper use of technology.
