The Instructional Technology Support Center at MTSU: Integrating Technology into K-12 and University Classrooms.
Schmidt, Constance R.
The Instructional Technology Support Center (ITSC) provides training and support for the use of instructional technology by K-12 teachers and Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) faculty. The goals of the ITSC include: training pre-service and in-service teachers in the use of instructional technology; improving MTSU teaching through expanded use of instructional technology; and developing multimedia curriculum for use in K-12 and MTSU classrooms. The ITSC consists of Media Services, Engineering and Technical Services, a multimedia development center, and three computer classrooms. Media Services houses an extensive multimedia library. Engineering and Technical Services provides audio-visual equipment and produces original videos. The multimedia classrooms are used for teaching courses in the teacher preparation program; for instructional technology training; and to provide access to computers for MTSU students and faculty. The paper summarizes ITSC history, administrative structure, facilities and services, and ITSC initiatives. (Author/SWC)
