TTSP Program Description
The Teaching + Technology Support Partners (TTSP) Program provides support and enriched training to graduate students who work with faculty in their departments to foster integration of technology and innovation in their teaching. Departments which are accepted into the program participate over a three-year period. TTSP is jointly administered by an Instructional Technology Advisor in ITS and the Teaching Resource Center.
The TTSP program addresses the needs of faculty members who have a lively interest in integrating entry to mid-level technologies into their teaching. In addition, the program is intended to help departments support the integration of technology into courses and programs and to prepare the graduate students participating in the program for their future roles as faculty members. The Partners work individually or in small groups with departmental faculty to assess their needs and goals and provide recommendations, training, and referrals.
