Advancing USC's strategic vision for teaching with technology

Teaching Strategies

This section focuses on strategies for teaching with technology.

Before making any educational technology recommendation, we begin by understanding the teaching practices and instructional goals that a faculty member has in mind. Based on that information, we can recommend appropriate technologies and even suggest innovative and new teaching strategies that might add value—such as increased student engagement—while still meeting course goals.

Resources  about strategies for teaching with technology currently address:

  • Best practices for maximizing the features of your USC Blackboard course site.
  • Inverting or “flipping a class” by moving select course components online while increasing active learning during on-campus class time.
  • Copyright, fair use and intellectual property guidelines.
