Monmouth University fully supports the use of technology in teaching/learning through the comprehensive services of Information Management (IM). Faculty are encouraged to integrate a variety of technologies into their courses and are provided necessary training and support. Beyond making use of our learning management system for content presentation and online participation, many employ a variety of web-based tools to increase student collaboration, participation, and engagement. In addition, the Monmouth University Library catalog and digital databases are available online, as are many instructional materials used in individual courses.
Instructional Support staff in IM provide faculty support towards technology-infused teaching and learning through the analysis of learning needs and systematic development of learning materials using technology and multimedia as tools to enhance instruction with the purposeful use of instructional technologies. Instructional Support also administers the learning management system, and conducts all training for this platform. Additionally, Instructional Support researches current trends and tools in order to ensure faculty have access to up-to-date information to guide their use of technology. Support for faculty is available via individual consultations, small group trainings, and professional development opportunities offered in collaboration with the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL).
