The Office of Academic Technology is a direct connection between the ITS department and the Pace academic community. Academic Technology staff explores, evaluates and implements various instructional technologies that are in line with faculty’s pedagogical practices and with the University’s Strategic Plan. The department facilitates Distributed Learning Initiatives (DLIs) including multiple types of technologies that support online, blended, and f2f teaching and learning. Learning management systems, web conferencing, lecture capture software and electronic portfolios are key areas of focus.
The Office of Academic Technology educates faculty and students about the effective use of these technologies through workshops, teaching circles, and user groups. The office works closely with various institutions to share best practices and gain new ideas for effective and efficient use of technologies.
