Office of Teaching, Learning, and Technology

The Office of Teaching, Learning, and Technology was formed by combining the Academic Technology department and the Center for Teaching and Learning. This partnership looks to advance the UIW mission by working with faculty and staff to encourage a university culture that rewards teaching and learning excellence. Under the guidance of Kathy Bottaro, each team within the department works with synergy to address instructional, pedagogical, and audiovisual-based needs across UIW.
