The EdTech Student Partners program helps faculty enhance their teaching with technology. The program pairs each faculty member with an EdTech Student Partner who meets with them on an ongoing basis to help them research technology tools appropriate to their goals, support them in the learning the tool, assist in the rollout and implementation of technologies in their classes, teach students how to use the technology, and provide feedback from a student perspective.

A faculty learning community is a cross-disciplinary group of 10-12 faculty who work together over an extended period of time to explore a specific topic related to their professional teaching practice. In this supportive environment, faculty explore best practices, engage in deep discussion about the topic and then share their work with the faculty community at large so as to support their colleagues in this area.
