On May 3, an “Excellence in Teaching With Technology Symposium” was held in the Great Reading Room. Executive Vice President and Provost, Gloria Gibson; and Shashi Kaparthi, CIO, Information Technology Services, presented instructional technology awards to Dr. O’Loughlin and others in the University community.
Dr. O’Loughlin has been successful in integrating technology into traditional course offerings. He regularly finds new ways to make context-appropriate technology a part of his classes. He pursues excellence in teaching with technology by focusing not on the specific technology tools students are asked to use, but on the intellectual tasks they are asked to solve using a range of appropriate technologies.
