Center for Learning Technologies

The Center for Learning Technologies (CLT) communicates and collaborates with faculty and other stakeholders to identify and enhance student learning opportunities. Staff members assist with design and development of learning experiences that meet learning objectives identified by instructors. CLT can assist instructors with loading materials into the learning management system as well.
