We believe that a commitment to teaching is a commitment to learning. Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. The AI&e Team will help UAA faculty members be successful by partnering with you to learn innovative instructional practices and master academic technologies in order to enhance your teaching efforts and increase student success. 

Our faculty support team's goal is universal access to online, hybrid and technology-enhanced courses in the framework of course and program design. Whether it’s simply building a learning object or tackling the design and development of an entire program for online learning, our team can help from initial design all the way through delivery. We can also assist you in learning how to find or produce fully accessible course content in order to ensure the all UAA students may achieve their academic goals, regardless of disability or challenges.

Our team’s professional development offerings will help you implement and optimize high impact practices to teach effectively in any environment, learn new tools, master copyright practices, and facilitate dynamic learning communities. We strive to build community throughout the UAA system and beyond. From concepts to tools to teaching, our collaborative Teaching Academy, Tech Fellows program and regular workshops will help you incorporate best practices and national standards in all of your courses.    

If you’re looking for assistance with teaching technologies or need access to cutting edge software and tools, we can help. Our Media Specialist can help you produce high-quality audio and video. Faculty and Students alike can utilize the innovative Innovative Design Studio to explore augmented reality; 3D printing and modeling; high quality media recording and editing; interactive conferencing, and create pieces for an eWolf eportfolio.
