Instructors interested in student-centered active learning pedagogy can learn more from the University of Iowa's Center for Teaching and Student Instructional Technology Assistants.
The Center works to enhance faculty professional development and advocates for meaningful learning experiences in the context of disciplinary needs and with the implementation of pedagogies and technologies appropriate to student learning needs.
SITAs guide instructors through the project planning process, provide consulting on technology and instructional design issues, offer production assistance, and introduce other Instructional Services resources as needed. SITAs also offer departmental training sessions on instructional software.
