A Little History about the TLT Award
The idea for the TLT Award resulted from the Reinventing Teaching and Learning through Technology (RTLT) Task Force. The Task Force included representative faculty from each college and representatives from departments which dealt directly with the use of technology, such as the Center for Teaching and Learning, eLearning Services, the Library, etc. At the end of the RTLT Task Force term, a report was generated with recommendations. The TLT Award stemmed from the recommendation that each year - a deserving faculty member would be honored by Lawrence Tech University for his or her innovative teaching and learning with technology.
The TLT award recognizes use of technology to create innovative approaches and support of teaching strategies and student learning experiences; the discipline-specific nature of the innovative use; and how through the use of technology student learning engagement may be increased.
