Thinking about Technology in Teaching

Adding technology to a course is often a step that many of us are reluctant to take for a variety of reasons–time and the threat of technological hiccups for one. The Faculty of Dentistry here at UBC is fortunate to have a Technology Support Team (TST) that can help alleviate the time and technology pressures. But…where to begin in thinking about what tool is suitable to your course?

I like this set of resources from Penn State University because it offers some simple technology-assisted solutions to some common areas where many instructors would like improvement in their courses–adding cases, creating good online discussion questions, and even tips for managing emails with students.
