Teaching & Learning + Technology: UW Tacoma strives constantly to find creative ways to support our learners.  With our commitment to more meaningful use of technologies, we are transforming the anytime/everywhere learning experience. We at the Office of Academic Innovation strive to support new pedagogy in a digital community of practice. Our goals are to:
word cloud

  • research, develop and promote emerging tools for teaching and learning,
  • inspire innovative use of social, collaborative and communication technologies,
  • support faculty in the use of new pedagogies that engage and support diverse learners 
  • research and assess effective practice in UWT's e-enriched courses


    Visit us at the Faculty Resource Center (FRC) where we work via learning communities, workshops, and 1:1 sessions, as well as through the FRC's online/anytime site. Come explore with us as we research, implement and adopt new tools and pedagogies. Join us as we work on engaging the new learner

    Whether you're wondering where to start in using our newCanvas LMS, in designing or teaching an online course or in looking for ways to 'Flip the Classroom' with new resources - much is happening at the FRC as UW Tacoma charts its course as an innovation center for teaching and learning.

    Please visit, or contact us for support and exploration of the exciting new space of any time/any where/every learner engagement.

    Looking forward to many conversations.
