ATL Project Showcase Highlights Use of Technology in Teaching

The Academic Technology Lab (ATL), located in Meyer Library room 181, is a resource center for faculty and TAs interested in integrating technology into their teaching.

Hundreds of faculty and TAs have come to the Academic Technology Lab for assistance with projects ranging from scanning documents and digitizing video clips to burning DVDs. Many patrons have agreed to share their experiences about working in the ATL with other faculty and institutions.

In every showcase, ATL patrons describe developing projects in their own words, as well as share feedback from students about the finished product. Each project showcase includes:
