Fall Advanced Instructional Technologies Course (AITC)
The AITC is an upper-level course designed for faculty, but can also be taken by staff. It provides an opportunity to investigate advanced features of Loyola’s instructional technologies, including Zoom, Panopto, VoiceThread, Respondus LockDown Browser, Turnitin, and more. The course is grounded in a series of guiding questions prompting participants to consider how they might use instructional technologies to increase student engagement and interaction, promote academic integrity, and apply insights gleaned from learning analytics to inform future course design. The next AITC will run September 12 - October 9, 2021. Space is limited. Participants successfully completing the course earn a letter of completion.
