Technology and Learning
Too often educators have either ignored technology or embraced it uncritically. Westminster does neither. Instead we use technology in ways that open students to new opportunities and deepen their learning. Our approach to learning underlies the technological resources available to faculty, staff, and students.

• Westminster’s Best Uses of Technology—Many Westminster faculty and staff use technology to powerful learning ends. Their work is chronicled here.
• Best Practices on Learning with Technology—Neither the newest technology nor the richest content guarantee learning. Instead, learning comes from students’ active engagement with the material. You can find ideas on how to create active learning in technology-rich settings here.
