Teaching+Technology Support Partners
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 teaching. Departments which are accepted into the program participate over a three-year period.
The program pays the entire cost of a Partner's position during the first year, half the cost for the second year, and a quarter of the cost for the third. The Partners work individually or in small groups with departmental faculty to assess their needs and goals and provide recommendations, training, and referrals. The program is intended to:
- address the needs of faculty members who have a lively interest in integrating entry to mid-level technologies into their teaching;
- help departments support the integration of technology into courses and programs; and
- prepare the graduate students participating in the program for their future roles as faculty members.
The TTSP Program is jointly administered by an Instructional Technology Advisor in ITS and the Teaching Resource Center. Since the program began in 1999, more than 20 departments, schools and centers throughout the University have participated.
