Training and Faculty Development
The McGlynn Computer and Technology Center offers a comprehensive selection of technology training that address the latest word processing, spreadsheet, database, desktop publishing and presentation software:
- Topical “lunch and learn sessions”
- Hands-on classes
- Help Guides
Sessions are designed for students and/or faculty and staff to learn computer skills that apply to academic or job-specific work. Courses are offered for beginners and advanced users at convenient times in computer labs on both campuses. Special workshops and seminars are continually added to address the latest software releases.
Faculty are the curriculum experts. Academic media and instructional specialists are the technology experts. Together, through one-on-one mentoring and a full complement of faculty development workshops, they are bringing increasingly more dynamic course content to St. Kate’s students.
Technology integration coaching — that’s the approach the Academic Technology team takes in helping professors use proven educational technologies in their classrooms to extend learning opportunities and support students.
Online instruction is a growing part of the pedagogy at St. Kate’s as are the inclusion of multimedia presentations that may include audio, video, animation and/or web components and the use of interactive media, such as classroom clickers, survey tools and electronic whiteboards.
