T&L Support for Teaching with Technology

One of the roles that Teaching & Learning embraces is supporting our liaison librarians in their instruction efforts.  Please reference the Teaching & Learning Staff overview on the homepage of this guide for a complete listing of our areas of expertise and focus.  Some of the specific ways in which we support our liaisons include:

Offering consultations:
  • Josh Thorud, Multimedia Librarian, is an excellent resource for assistance with video and screencasting needs.  His office hours may be booked at this link.
  • Bethany Mickel, Teaching & Learning Librarian, can assist with innovative instruction strategies, various online instructional technologies, and material creation.  Her office hours may be booked at this link.
Classroom support:
  • Zoom sessions can be tricky.  It is often helpful to have a second person in the background to help monitor the chat, answer questions that arise related to technology, or facilitate breakout rooms and other interactions.  Please contact teachlearn@virginia.edu OR any member of our team to request that one of us 'sit in' during a class session taught by a librarian to assist.  
Material creation:
  • Do you need to create a short tutorial, guide, or other instructional material?  We can help you develop your idea and create instructional material that meets the needs of your students and faculty.  
Technology assistance:
  • While we are always excited to explore new technologies, we find that utilization of the ones provided by UVa yields the best results as they are both institutionally-supported and familiar to our students and faculty.  
  • Please refer to the University's Learning Tech page.  It outlines the various tools UVA supports and even categorizes the technologies based on need.  
  • There is training material available for each tool; however, we are also happy to meet with you to discuss how you might leverage the tool for your classes and specific discipline.
