Faculty Services (Student services for technology found here)
The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) and the Office of Student Support and Success (OSSS) offers Instructional Technology Services to faculty and students in the teaching and learning environment.
Faculty interested in such services can contact the CTE Instructional Technologist/Technical Projects and Operations Manager to make an appointment. Walk-in visits are also welcome in the Technical Resource Lab, STT589.

Technical Resource Lab Hours
The Technical Resource Lab, located in Loyola Science Center 589, contains high-end software and hardware in a work place well-suited for collaboration.
Student technical consultants, TechCons, staff the Technical Resource Lab and provide technical assistance. Click here to view the TechCon hours of availability.
Brightspace Training & Assistance
The CTE offers assistance with the use of Brightspace to faculty. Faculty can learn how to use Brightspace to engage students in more class participation/discussion and to make reviewing course content more fun.
Lecture Capture: Panopto
Panopto is a presentation-capture system that allows instructors to record what happens in their classrooms and make it available digitally. The Panopto recording interface is only available through the Brightspace learning management system.
Faculty can use Panopto on a classroom computer to capture interactions, lectures, presentations, student demonstrations and role-playing scenarios. It can also be used on a faculty member’s computer to create learning modules to deliver ancillary content or pre-lecture information.View the Lecture-capture website for more information
TechCons (student consultants) are available to assist faculty in developing, enhancing, or updating web pages and publishing course materials on the web.
Training in Instructional Technologies
Training in general instructional technologies is offered throughout the year. Faculty classroom training is provided when new classrooms are mediated, at the beginning of each Fall and Spring semester, and whenever faculty request assistance using the technology in a room they are teaching in.
Faculty workshops/seminars are held throughout the year on Pedagogy, Brightspace, E-Portfolio development, and to showcase available technology and how it can enhance teaching.
Portfolio and E-Portfolio Support
Faculty can get assistance in creating electronic portfolios. Capturing still pictures and video, transferring files from a digital or video camera to a computer, editing graphics and video, scanning, and saving everything to a server-based folder as well as burning it to a CD are all part of the E-Portfolio services offered.
Assistance with PowerPoint Presentations
The CTE can provide assistance to faculty in creating/designing PowerPoint presentations. This includes incorporating text, graphics (photos and clipart), animation, audio/video, Web links, and background s to enhance the presentation.
Assistance with Windows Movie Maker and Other Multimedia Resources
Staff and student technical consultants are available to assist faculty in using multimedia resources that are available in the Instructional Lab in the CTE such as scanners, digital cameras, video cameras, and color printers.
The CTE employs a small team of technically savvy students known as TechCons and provides them with real-world experience.
