DISCOVERe Mobile Technology Program

The overall goal for faculty is to provide a transformed learning experience for students in a face-to-face classroom setting that leverages mobile technology to include opportunities for innovation and engagement. Faculty will explore and select appropriate technology that aligns with their pedagogy to enhance learning activities that meet student learning outcomes.

Faculty wishing to teach DISCOVERe-tagged classes, which will enable students to receive an iPad to use during the semester, can complete the self-paced online training DISCOVERe Essentials through Canvas. Upon completion, participants will be eligible to receive their faculty iPad and to have their courses tagged for students.

The Academic Technology Resource Center (ATRC) is available on a drop-in basis (in-person or on Zoom) or you can schedule an appointment with an Instructional Designer (in-person or on Zoom).
