The Technology Enhanced Learning Program at UVa offers a collaborative venue for faculty to work with instructional designers, support staff and each other to incorporate technology enhanced learning into their courses. This program offers a curriculum for faculty to leverage local resources in the process of learning about technology enhanced teaching.

The presentation will outline how this program was designed and implemented, emphasizing the partnership between UVa?s Sakai support team and designers in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies to work collaboratively with instructors.

Best practice strategies and learning assessments will be discussed, and Sakai?s rich tool set will be explored.

The following strategies were used to integrate meaningful instruction:

  • Course Organization
  • Guest Speakers from a National and International Perspective
  • Online Team Meetings
  • Interactive Assessment
  • Social Media Course Integration
