Do-it-yourselfers everywhere know they need to use the right tools for the job. So do college and university faculty. But even the latest high-tech “cool tool” won’t solve learning problems if it isn’t thoroughly integrated into your course. This presentation shows you how to use educational technology to enhance teaching and learning.


Educational technology can throw your teaching off balance when it doesn’t support your learning objectives or when it isn’t the right tool for the job at hand. Drawing on the principles of backward design, this program will show you how to bring your course back into alignment or make sure it stays that way.
