About Us

Instructional Technology

The Instructional Technology Center supports the educational technology needs of The University of Tennessee at Martin. Our purpose is to provide a facility to explore technology and then incorporate it into the classroom.

 

The Instructional Technology Center (formerly the Faculty Multimedia Center) was founded by a gift from Harry and Rosemary Crisp with the express desire of supporting UT Martin faculty with incorporating instructional technology into teaching.

 

Web Services

Web Services manages the development, creation, and maintenance of the departmental websites at the University of Tennessee at Martin. By working closely with the departments on campus, we seek to provide a consistent and easy to use interface for our web site users. Learning about new efforts and achievements contributes to how we promote the university and its accomplishment.

 

All requests for departmental website changes should submit a Website Change Request Form.

 

Available Resources

Resources available include a 18-workstation computer lab with the latest hardware and software, plus hands on training classes offered throughout the year. The ITC staff welcome you to visit. We are always ready to help.

 

Faculty Use

All faculty are encouraged to use the facilities at ITC, during the hours from 8am-noon and 1pm-5pm Monday through Friday. Graduate Assistants, who are helping with faculty projects, may also use the facilities during this time. A full-time ITC staff member is available to provide assistance and one-on-one instruction throughout the entire year, except during Administrative Closing. After hours, a key is available at the library circulation desk to gain access to the ITC lab.

 

Training & Education Events and Resources

The ITC provides numerous opportunities throughout the year to get training or education.

We have regular monthly training sessions on the various technological tools available to faculty. These sessions vary from month to month, and we provide training based on what is requested of us and what is demanded.

 

Day-long Blackboard training days. We call these days our "Blackboard Blitz" and usually schedule these training days just prior to the start of fall and spring semesters.

Faculty Development Summer Workshop. Every year after the spring semester, the ITC hosts a summer workshop that is provided to UTM faculty who present proposals for technology projects that they want to complete. It is a week-long event where the participants work on their projects in the ITC computer lab and get assistance from ITC personnel.
