Learning Technology Center
The UWM Learning Technology Center (LTC) provides timely support through a variety methods, from one-on-one consultations to workshops, for faculty and instructors seeking to use technologies in pedagogically effective ways, including campus-wide tools such as Desire2Learn. Comprised of an enthusiastic team of teachers and researchers with advanced degrees in their respective disciplines and with many years of experience teaching and supporting technology-enhanced, blended, and online courses, the LTC works with faculty and instructors to improve teaching and increase student learning by crafting sound, proven, and active learning strategies. While the LTC is not a production unit, it works with other campus units to meet custom technology needs of faculty and their students. In addition, a major goal of the LTC is to pilot and evaluate new and emerging technologies intended to facilitate innovative teaching and learning methods. Members of the LTC share their knowledge and experience with the UWM teaching community and disseminate this research at conferences and in publications.
