Work with the CELT Team
Academic Technology provides faculty with a supportive environment for learning how to effectively integrate technology into the curriculum. We help faculty use technology to develop best practices that improve teaching and learning through workshops, demonstrations, online resources, and evaluation of technology. Our partnership with CELT’s instructional consultant ensures that pedagogy is at the forefront of what we do. Click here to visit the AT site.

Service Learning and Internships
Our goal is to facilitate learning through service by coordinating academic service activities that meet the needs of our community and business partners. We provide resources and support to faculty to connect coursework and students with high quality experiential learning, promoting growth while students explore and develop important skills for future success.
