Academic Technology Support

We support and promote the effective use of technology and design in teaching, research and administrative initiatives. Our services fall within the below categories:

Course Design

Supporting and guiding faculty through any and all phases of the course design and production process, including instructional design, media development best practices, project management, and introduction to appropriate resources within the University. This can include new courses or existing courses.

Technology-Enhanced Education Fund

The Academic Technology team leads Steinhardt’s Technology-Enhanced Education Fund (more information here). This is an eight week professional development program to support technology-based enhancements for existing undergraduate and graduate courses. The program was first piloted in summer 2015. Faculty whose proposals are accepted receive a stipend to work weekly with Steinhardt's academic technology team to develop high-fidelity solutions for content delivery, collaborative learning environments, evaluation and assessment, and physical classroom/learning environments.

Support for Teaching with Technology

Support faculty in using technology effectively in teaching and research through individual and small group sessions. Create and disseminate templates, guides and best practices. Assist and provide technical support using University and Steinhardt tools and resources.

Innovation and Experimentation

Support the academic, research and administrative needs of our clients by creating new opportunities to adapt our academic technology environment by exploring and creating new solutions, processes or innovations.
