Integrating Technology and Engagement through E-Learning (ITEE)

The Office of E-Learning provides institution-wide leadership in the development and delivery of technology enhanced instruction. Building on the Stockton University values of a distinctive, student-centered learning environment, the office promotes the use of technology tools and pedagogical practices that will provide opportunities for meaningful and diverse learning activities in all instructional environments (i.e., face to face, hybrid, online), all technology environments (synchronous, asynchronous, mobile, laptop, desktop), and all instructional methodologies (i.e., self-directed, collaborative, academic, experiential).

The ITEE grant program provides support for faculty who wish to pursue opportunities to use technology to further engage their students in the learning process. There are two types of funding opportunities currently available: 1) A self-selected project using technology to enhance student learning; or 2) Online Learning Consortium (OLC)  Online Teaching Certificate
