Want to Innovate?
While ComETS as a group is focused on promoting dialog and events focused on technology in learning & teaching some educational technology staff are also involved with exploration of innovative educational technologies. Typically, we explore how new technologies might benefit instructors and students or how existing technologies may be used in novel ways to support high quality teaching and learning.
If you are interested in exploring how educational technologies might help support your teaching, we would be happy to help. You can contact us at email@example.com.
Feel free to explore the Ed Tech Resources page where you will find various links to videos, articles, software, and white papers that can give you some ideas for your own teaching. Also, if you have an idea for a technology not mentioned here that you would like to use, feel free to contact us to discuss how we might be able to help.
