Instructional and Event Technology

The Instructional and Event Technology team provides technical and pedagogical support to faculty, staff and students of the Law School.

Instructional and Event Technology (IET) aims to provide members of the Law School community with the highest level of technical, logistical and pedagogical support by way of a team of dedicated and trained IT, AV and ed-tech professionals.

IET is made up of several specialized teams:

  • Classroom Technology: Assists with support of all audio-visual components in the Law School. Team members assist with the set up of: in-room presentations; video conferences for lectures and seminars; small panel discussions; automated classroom recordings; and technical tools for students with ADA accommodations. Classroom Technology provides training and documentation in the use of all audio-visual equipment in our classrooms. The team also maintains and upgrades all audio-visual technology in the classrooms.
  • Educational Technology: Oversees the Law School's support of Courseworks (Canvas), Echo360, WordPress and a number of other platforms designed to provide pedagogical support to faculty and students. The team organizes trainings throughout the year on the platforms that we support, and also holds regular office hours for those in need of one-on-one assistance. We work closely with our partners at the Center for Teaching and Learning to keep up to date with the latest trends and innovations in educational technology.
  • Event Technology: Assists with the planning and execution of all major in-person and virtual events hosted by the Law School's Special Events team, as well as, the Office of the Dean. The team also consults with Law School centers/programs and departments seeking to host an event at the Law School. In these instances, Event Technology provides logistical guidance and technical training in the use of classroom-based event technology. The team may also liaise with 3rd party AV companies for direct support of events, as needed.
