Facilities and Features
The ILE lab gives students the opportunity to partner with faculty to research the latest immersive technology for teaching and learning. It’s an innovative space for educators to examine “next generation” augmented and virtual reality tools to help fill the gap of research and to link practical application and features to established teaching and learning theory.
As part of a grant from the US Department of Education and in partnership with Jacksonville State University, Tarleton offers an annual professional development conference and technology training for teachers in rural areas. Additional funds from the President’s Circle allows us to offer a summer iKids Technology camp. All of our grant-funded initiatives are aimed at allowing us to be a part of transforming K-12 and higher education in our region through the use of innovative technology and teaching.
Students in the department of Educational Leadership and Technology have exclusive access to graduate-level tailored study abroad opportunities like a 2019 trip to study education systems in the United Kingdom (Scotland and England), and a planned future trip to Ireland to study innovation and design thinking.
The learning experiences in my EDTC course work at Tarleton State prepared me for numerous opportunities, including my current role as Director of Distance Learning for Trinity Valley Community College. I have led universities through Learning Management migrations and continue to develop professional development programs for faculty in higher education. The program provided me with pertinent experiences to build my knowledge about education, technology, and leadership. The program not only prepared me to be a leader in the field today, but prepared me for the future of instructional technology and design.Holly Collier, Alumnus
