Academic Technologies

The Teaching and Learning Center is your resource for enhancing teaching, learning, and professional development. Toward that purpose, we have developed informative overviews and resources for each of the UTHSC licensed Academic Technologies below. These academic technologies are supported by the Teaching and Learning Center to promote technology-enhanced teaching and learning as well as assist faculty with research, course and curriculum development. If you require further assistance, please schedule a support session.
