Common Questions:

Where can I get training for classroom technologies on campus?

Classroom A/V is managed by Information Technology (IT). If part of that technology includes using Zoom in the classroom or another technology Distance Education (DE) offers, then DE will work with IT to offer the training together. It is recommended that a GovsTech support ticket be filled out for “Classroom and Learning Spaces Technology Solutions.”

If it is DE related, Govstech will send the ticket the DE office

What are the options for recording my lectures?

Options for recording lectures are Distance Education related. They can fill out a support ticket through the same site, but select “Distance Education: Online/Innovative Learning” option.

History of the APSU Center for Teaching and Learning

On October 1, 2008, the Department of Education awarded a Title III grant to Austin Peay State University. The grant provided APSU with funds to improve and strengthen its academic quality, institutional management, and fiscal stability.

To facilitate these objectives, President Hall established the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). CTL developed a comprehensive approach to student success, offered new strategies to meet the needs of at-risk students, and supported comprehensive professional development for faculty and staff.
