NWACC Instructional Technology Mission Statement
The mission of the NWACC Instructional Technology Group is to maintain a collaborative network and build inter-institutional relationships in order to reduce duplication of effort and improve campus services in the uses of technology for teaching and learning. We envision the evolution of a professional association which will be of value to members in their work and professional development.
What is NWACCo?
NWACCo.org is a joint project by members of the Northwest Academic Computing Consortium to develop an open, online resource around educational technologies.
- A Resouce for EdTech types: nwacco.org aggregates feeds from NWACC members related to instructional technology. Please contribute your instructional tech feed to the site!
- A networking site for NWACC Instructional Technology folks. See the Community Page to get started.
- Ed Tech Deck Project: is a collaborative effort featuring contributions from Instructional Technology staff from NWACC schools. Our goal was to create an instructional and technological resource for Faculty, with a physical deck for a quick introduction or overview for a topic, and a corresponding website for expanded information and links. We hope that you find this resource useful. Please let us know how we can improve the deck, and feel free to suggest additional content for future iterations of the deck.
How do I get involved ?
NWACC IT members are encouraged to participate. See the Community Page to get started.
Where did it come from?
NWACCo.org emerged from NWACC’s (NorthWest Academic Computing) 2011 Instructional Technology Roundtable and is inspired by Jim Groom and UMW’s open online course DS106.
