What is Instructional Technology?
It is a process that uses instructional tools in conjunction with learning theories to organize, sequence, present, and reinforce information appropriately for particular teaching/learning situations. At JGS-OOT we design and develop technology-enhanced instruction, which requires an understanding of the learner, the context, instructional goals, learning theory, instructional strategies, evaluation, and technological capabilities.

Our goals are to:

  • Serve as a resource to the faculty on pedagogical exploration and reflection
  • Increase faculty awareness of instructional technologies and how to use them
  • Provide assistance in course development and integration of technologies into the course curriculum
  • Share expertise and build community around pedagogical aspects of technologies
