Working with Faculty
The overarching responsibility of the ITG is to collaborate with faculty to support their teaching and research. Each individual Instructional Technologist has the ability and wherewithal to work with faculty in the following ways:
- Pedagogy & instructional technology advice
ITG members are prepared to discuss and advise on the pedagogically appropriate use of technology in your classes.
- WFU hardware and software standards
All members of the Instructional Technology Group (ITG) are familiar with the Wake Forest University campus-issued tools and technologies. This includes
- Current Apple and Lenovo standard laptops
- Google tools
- The tools available at software.wfu.edu
- Adobe Creative Cloud
- Classroom multimedia support
We aid faculty in the operation of the multimedia equipment in the classroom. Please watch the video series that IS Multimedia created for an overview. The WFU Multimedia team is responsible for repair and replacement of the hardware in the classrooms.
ITG members can consult with you in setting up websites for individual or class use. WordPress is a free, open-source platform for creating web content that is the supported web site solution at WFU.
The Instructional Technologists are prepared to provide support and assistance with any of the subjects listed above. If you have additional instructional technology questions, please contact your assigned ITG member.
