What does the Instructional Technologist do?

  • Evaluate new technologies to discover new and better ways to enhance instruction
  • Assist faculty in discovering methods of improving their instruction with and without technology
  • Conduct training sessions teaching faculty and staff how to use new technologies
  • Create training materials to accommodate the self-learners and provide resources for our “customers”
  • Manage the implementation of new technologies on-campus for the use of instruction
  • The above list gives an overview of what I do on my job.  I would suspect that all Instructional Technologists  have similiar duties, but depending on the type of environment you work in they could definitely vary quite a bit.
