Temple is committed to providing free technology training to help University faculty, staff, and current students maximize the use of technology in teaching and learning.
Training opportunities available at Temple include:
Center for the Advancement of Teaching
Technology Training provided by the Center for the Advancement of Teaching accommodates all user levels and covers a variety of accessibility topics. Subjects covered by these free courses include: how to create accessible documents using Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat PDF, and how to design accessible websites and online courses using Blackboard.
Guidance on how to employ the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in your courses is also available. Universally designed courses improve and optimize learning for all students in the class by considering how we engage students, present information and provide opportunities for students to express what they know.
