The Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies is a service organization available to any UMW faculty member who wishes to explore how digital technologies can augment and transform teaching, learning, and research at the University.
DTLT research informs projects at the University and allows the division to serve as a conduit between faculty and students at UMW and external academic, research, and technical communities which are also engaged in the exploration and innovative use of digital technologies.
In collaboration with the University’s Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning, DTLT also offers professional development opportunities to faculty and staff. The division serves as an organizational contact for several academic technology consortiums and centers, including the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI). DTLT publicizes opportunities offered by these organizations to faculty at UMW and supports faculty participation in academic technology conferences, workshops, and seminars.
DTLT manages the University’s blogging platform, UMW Blogs, as well as the flagship Domain of One’s Own project. The division also administers and support the University’s learning management system, Canvas.
DTLT is located in room 410 of the Convergence Center.
