Class Training for Faculty
Our training staff can conduct a session for your classroom on any supported software program. We will work with you to adjust our workshop to fit your curriculum. Please fill out our Class Training for Faculty Form to schedule a training session.

Instructional Technology offers in-depth Instructional Design services for faculty and provides one-on-one faculty consultations. Our team works with faculty to design their courses with the appropriate technologies to address desired learning goals and accurate assessment.
We train faculty on using Canvas, blogs, wikis, digital audio and video tools, streaming services, podcasting and online classroom environments. They also provide assistance with research design, along with statistical setup and analysis.
Please submit a support case to request a faculty consultation and schedule a meeting with one of our instructional designers.
We can keep your staff up to speed with new technology, and we'll work with you to fit our sessions to your department needs. Please fill out the Department Training Request Form to schedule a group training session for your department. Examples of previous department training include:
- an overview of Microsoft Office
- an introduction on how to edit St. Edward's websites
- a session on using Box
Screencasting: Video Tutorials
A screencast is a video capture of action on a computer screen, usually with voice narration. Screencasts are often instructional in nature, allowing the creator to explain how to use a software program, like on our training YouTube channel or lynda.com, or to demonstrate how to solve math problems on a digital "whiteboard" like Khan Academy.
Our training staff can assist your office with planning your screencast project, developing a production process, coaching on how to prepare scripts and technical training on screencasting software like Camtasia. Training staff may also offer production assistance on eligible university projects.
For any training-related requests or questions, you can submit a support case.
