The Academic Technology Center (ATC) is committed to UWF’s primary mission of student access and success by providing high quality faculty support and training programs that promote excellence in online curriculum and instruction. ATC also serves as a catalyst for the application of new technologies to support the variety of distance learning strategies needed to meet the diverse needs of the students we serve.
We are a Faculty Support Center
ATC supports faculty in the design, development, implementation and continuous improvement of quality online and blended courses at UWF. There is substantial research to indicate what constitutes best practices in online/blended course design and delivery to achieve good student learning outcomes and satisfaction. Organizations, such as Quality Matters, the Online Learning Consortium, and Educause promote research and best practice for online teaching and learning.
