Welcome to the Teaching with Technology Guide created by the Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy. Our objective is simple: to create an online, on-demand learning guide that is available for faculty to help them prepare to use online technologies in their teaching.
Our goal is to give overall descriptions, practical examples, pros and cons of employing the tools or techniques associated with teaching online. Best practices and specific technological resources will be added as we complete each content area.
Topics, tools and techniques covered were determined as a result of a series of faculty focus groups; during these sessions, faculty with online experience shared their perceptions of what is important to consider when teaching and learning online. The guide is a first step in raising the issue of quality standards for online courses and will serve as partial basis for our Online Teaching Certificate program.
NOTE: Loyola University Chicago is in the process of changing our LMS to Sakai. These pages are gradually being updated to incorporate the new tool sets.
