The A&S Learning Design & Technology team is a faculty support group created to collaborate with and support faculty as they explore how to incorporate innovative pedagogies and instructional technologies into their courses.

Dedicated to the idea that intentional and authentic decisions about course design lead to engaged learning for students, we provide forums for faculty to consider and apply these ideas, help develop individual and programmatic projects, introduce instructors to the wide array of tools and technologies available to them, and adapt both physical and digital learning environments to best support learning.
