What We Do

Learning Technology Consultants (LTCs) are dedicated to assisting instructors with using campus-supported teaching and learning technologies. As a part of the Academic Technology Application Team, we offer a spectrum of support from departmental trainings to one-on-one consultations. Many of us are instructors and have taught at CU Boulder, so we have an intimate knowledge of how technology can be used to facilitate teaching and learning. Learn more about our services below to find the help that would work best for you.
