Instructional Innovation Consulting: The world of instructional technology and technology-enhanced learning is changing rapidly. Academic Technology Support is constantly watching for new technologies and pedagogical strategies on the horizon to ensure that faculty and students at MSU receive the best opportunities afforded by the best teaching and learning strategies that are emerging in the research literature. Personal/individual Instructional Consulting: Instructors interested in designing or reviewing their courses to help ensure alignment of their learning goals with their course activities can schedule an appointment with a member of our instructional design team to get personalized assistance in designing and building their course materials.

 

Teaching with Live Video Conferencing and TelePresence: Live video conferencing and TelePresence offer new and novel ways for our faculty to engage learners across time and space. ATS offers services to help you learn how best to leverage the affordances of this technology and to teach effectively when your learners are at one or more remote locations.

 

Quality Matters (QM)is the national gold standard for quality in online courses. The QM standards are based on robust instructional design principles. Academic Technology Support has certified QM reviewers on staff and we are happy to help you integrate Quality Matters principles into your course or your entire curriculum. A Quality Matters template has been developed in D2L that assists faculty in creating their course materials in compliance with the D2L standards.
