Teaching & Learning Technologies

Teaching and Learning Technologies

The TLT department designs and delivers teaching and learning technology training to Nazareth College faculty and staff:

The TLT department also creates video and written training materials, and troubleshoots technical issues with any applications we support.

The Instructional Designer provides research and consultation services for course design, course conversion from traditional to hybrid/online, or course refresh. The Essentials Workshop for Online & Hybrid Instruction provides faculty with current best practices in distance education, technical guidance, and a one-time stipend award as they develop or convert courses into an online or hybrid format.
