About the

Student Technology Assistants Program

Student Technology Assistants provide student help to faculty for the creation of multimedia related learning materials.

Student Media Assistants provide on-site classroom technical support.

 

Mission

Our goal is to successfully foster faculty projects that integrate technology into the curriculum and classroom in meaningful ways. By the time each project is completed, faculty members will learn to successfully use the technology to the best of their ability, and the Student Technology Assistants will gain an appreciation of the subject matter of each curriculum project. This program emphasizes the following core values:

Service
To enhance the current curriculum/classroom environment with increased use of technology.

Student Development
To improve student development by broadening knowledge of technical, organizational, and managerial skills while learning about different subjects across the curriculum. We will also strive to increase the skill level of each STA/SMA through project rotation and individual or group training.

Faculty Development
To improve the technical expertise of the faculty by increasing their experience with a broad range of technology.

Community Development
To improve the University community by fostering new types of faculty and student collaboration.
