We strive to be the meeting place where the substantial research of our own college meets the reality of online instruction on a day-to-day basis. That balance has allowed us to create quality courses for both the instructor and the student. Our instructional design seeks to offer learning opportunities that:

  • Promote explicit articulation of student outcomes
  • Integrate formative and summative assessments into the learning process.
  • Create both learner-centric and collaborative opportunities for students to engage material in different ways and with different perspectives.
  • Assist faculty through professional development in embracing and utilizing technology effectively.

Some of the services offered by ETC include:

  • Design of online teaching and learning
  • Development of learning activities
  • Co-design of effective video-based learning content
  • Planning and implementing distance observation strategy
  • Support for grant-funded research
  • Educational project management
