IiL Instructional Technology

The Innovations in Learning team provides training and mini-courses on the classroom technology we have here at UW-Parkside. We offer training to both faculty and staff so they can learn how to efficiently use the technology in their courses and workshops. Alongside classroom technology, UW-Parkside also offers a variety of software, such as Kaltura and Blackboard Collaborate, that the Innovations in Learning team is happy to help incorporate into courses.

Online Technology Requirements

When talking about online learning, a big question that pops up is "What technology do I need to take an online course?". We have compiled a list of basic requirements for the technology needed when taking an online course.

Online Technology Requirements

We strongly encourage all faculty teaching online to read the technology requirements and provide them to their online courses via the syllabus or in the course content.

Classroom Technology

UW-Parkside has a variety of classroom technology that can impact not only face-to-face courses, but online courses as well. UW-Parkside has technology ranging from interactive whiteboards, Mac/PC labs, and classrooms equipped with recording equipment.

We have multiple Mac/PC labs across campus, but we also have a designated collaboration room called the Learning Technology Lab (LTL). The Learning Technology Lab is equipped with an interactive whiteboard and circle tables which are ideal for collaboration. The Learning Technology Lab can be reserved for classes, meetings, and workshops.

You can find which rooms offer specific equipment on the UW-Parkside Technology Classrooms page.
