This page provides resource guides for educational technology available both in the College of Pharmacy and the university, at large.
TEACHING WITH TECHNOLOGY
Educational Technologies can be powerful tools to support teaching whether it is face-to-face, hybrid, or online. When selecting a technology for teaching, it is often helpful to start with the question “why use this tool” rather than starting with “how do I use this tool.” Strive for technology integration over the use of technology for technology’s sake. Technology integration involves purposeful, planned use that allows for greater engagement with course content, facilitates collaboration, facilities an activity that would not be possible without it, and supports your learning objectives.
OEIS instructional designers and educational technologists are happy to consult with you as you navigate the integration of a College of Pharmacy or university-wide educational technology tool within your teaching.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU FIND A NEW TOOL AND WOULD LIKE TO USE IT?
The earlier you reach out to the OEIS team and the College of Pharmacy Technology services team, the better. Remember that all technology tools—even free tools—must undergo both a security and risk assessment review and an accessibility review before they can be implemented. These reviews can take considerable time to be completed.
As such, OEIS might be able to help you find a creative use of an already approved university-supported or college-supported tool to help you to meet your learning objectives.
If your learning objectives do warrant the use of a new tool, OEIS can help with the following:
- Determine if a risk assessment has been performed in partnership with College of Pharmacy Technology Services;
- Coordinate with Stephenie Stein, our college’s accessibility coordinator, to ensure that we review the tool for digital accessibility compliance, and
- Develop a plan to submit to the ADA’s office for an accommodations-based exception request, when needed.
