The AD will also help faculty to evaluate if, when, and which technology might meet their instructional needs and enhance students' learning, as well as support faculty moving between on-site, on-line or hybrid courses. Finally, the AD will work closely with other instructional support units on campus to provide seamless, collaborative support.
