EdTech Student Partners Program

What is the EdTech Student Partners Program?

The EdTech Student Partners program helps faculty integrate technology in their courses. Each faculty member is paired with an EdTech Student Partner for a semester-long partnership. In this partnership, EdTech Student Partners meet with faculty members one-on-one to consult about technology tools, support them in the classroom, teach students how to use the technology, and provide feedback from a student perspective.
