Technology Services

Teaching

TTS can consult and provide technical guidance for using technology in the classroom and even provide access to that technology for professors and students to use during a class semester
 
What TTS cannot do:
  • Offer in-class technology support
  • Teach a workshop specifically for a class
When TTS provides access to a technology for the classroom use, the technology will be available for only the semester in which requested, unless longer access is needed and approved by TTS.
 
Please contact dhprojects@duke.edu for help with doing a digital project in the classroom. If you are looking to try out a new digital tool in your teaching, TTS also offers a pilot program.
 
Examples:
  • In Fall 2015, Dr. Victoria Szabo, Associate Research Professor of Visual and Media Studies in Art, Art History, and Visual Studies and Program and Lab Director in Information Science + Studies, used Geonode in her Historical and Cultural Visualization Promseminar 1 to teach students how to georectify historical maps. Here is an example product from the class: http://geoportal.trinity.duke.edu/layers/geonode%3Adurhamholc_georef_example
  • In Fall 2016, Dr. Kristin Lanzoni, Instructor in the Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies, utilized Neatline in her Italian Baroque Art course to trace the development of the Italian baroque in architecture, sculpture and painting. Here’s a link to the site: http://baroque.trinity.duke.edu/. In Spring 2017, Dr. Alicia Jimenez, Assistant Professor in Classical Studies, also used Neatline in her Roman Spectacle course to map and visualize forms of public entertainment in the Roman World.
