Learning Technology Training

Technology for teaching and learning has changed dramatically in recent years. We all need help from time to time. The skilled individuals of the Learning Technology Training Department provide the training and support you need to do your job. Learning Technology Trainers collaboratively provide formal and informal opportunities for face-to-face, online, individual and group sessions. If you prefer to learn on your own, self-help and self-guided resources are at hand. Divisions and departments wishing to address a particular topic related to technology in teaching and learning are welcome to approach Learning Technology Training for assistance and demonstrations. Whether you are in the office, classroom or an online course, the Learning Technology Training Department can provide you with what you need to successfully integrate technology and meet the needs of today's learner.

Students and faculty are invited to access Learning Technology Training on mySaskPolytech.

Instructional Design

At Saskatchewan Polytechnic, instructional designers are both designers and developers.  We work closely with faculty to determine how students can best learn via technology. Together, we systematically plan online learning activities, courses and programs.  We also manage development teams for learning materials.  Those teams include program faculty and admin staff, reviewers, Learning Technology Trainers, librarians, graphic artists, media specialists, actors, etc.

Instructional designers are both creative and tech-savvy people.  We have designed online learning opportunities that are delivered synchronously (to all students at the same time) and asynchronously (to students at different times). We work on large projects (such as entire courses) or smaller projects (such as a single learning activity).

Web Publishing

The web publishing department creates print and electronic media. There are three main groups within this department:

  1. Web developers create interactive media rich content for electronic curriculum delivery.
  2. Desktop publishers create both traditional print curriculum guides and interactive electronic manuals.
  3. Graphic artists are skilled in the art of visual communication. They create graphic elements such as illustrations, diagrams, maps, charts and graphs that are embedded in coursework in order to illustrate concepts and communicate ideas.

Each of these groups works closely with programs to help develop content to suit their needs.
