Instructional Technology and Design Services

Instructional Technology and Design Services – ITDS (formerly TTI – Technology Training and Integration), a subdivision of Information Technology, is committed to providing services, support, and education to the University community in order to effectively integrate innovative instructional strategies and technology into the teaching and learning process. We achieve this mission by offering a wide variety of instructional design consultations/assistance, faculty development programs and initiatives, and technology training opportunities, which are delivered in a manner that is customized to facilitate, support, and enhance the scholarship of teaching and learning through assimilation of effective pedagogical paradigms and technology. Our focus is on promoting learning-enhanced educational principles and strategies, adapting emerging and promising technologies to the teaching curriculum, and demonstrating best pedagogical uses that will facilitate leaner-centered educational environment.

Our services include support for Canvas, our learning management system, training and workshops in a wide range of instructional technologies, as well as resources on course design, pedagogical strategies, faculty development, instructional design consultation and accessibility for instructional materials. Our goal is to assist and guide faculty on how to start the course design and development process and introduce best pedagogical practices and the effective use of technologies in teaching and learning. ITDS also serves as a foundational resource for online and hybrid course development and teaching practice at Montclair State University.
