Interested in learning more about Blended Learning?

Join the CTL’s learning circle of UMSL faculty who are curious about blended instruction and willing to experiment with blended techniques in future courses. Whether you plan to blend activities or your entire course is up to you. Our group will share design options, implementation techniques, and assessment strategies to keep students engaged inside the classroom and out within a single, unified course.

Welcome from the Faculty Resource Center

On behalf of the Faculty Resource Center (FRC) staff, I would like to welcome faculty, staff and students to our 2014 fall semester at UMSL. We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that our door is open; we look forward to helping you succeed with technology. If you’re new to UMSL we invite you to ask a colleague about their experiences with our Center. Afterwards stop by room 105 Express Scripts Hall (ESH) and have a cup of coffee with Jennifer, Paul and Tom. We would be delighted to provide you with an overview of our resources and answer any questions you have.

We realize the start of a new semester is a busy time and we’re here to help. Our resources reflect UMSL’s commitment to strengthening the support for teaching and learning with technology. Below is a highlight of our services:

  • Individual consultation related to the use of technology (MyGateway, online collaborative tools)
  • Workshops that focus on a variety of technology themes
  • On-site technology workshops (upon request)
  • Assistance with the use of Qualtrics, online assessment tool
  • Support faculty and staff interested in developing websites
  • Assistance with converting files to different formats
  • Assistance with scanning documents and images
