Instructor Support: Services

Instructor Resources

Dey 110 attempts to stay current with new technologies that aid classroom instruction. However, we need your help as well. If you have any ideas for new instructional technology, programs, or just general ideas about how to improve language instruction please come visit us! We test new software and products to help instructors and the language program on the whole stay on top of current technological advances.

We have created a list of resources that should assist in your classroom instruction and be sure to visit the tutorials and projects pages to learn more about the services available to instructors.

We also provide technology and instructional support for the rooms in the LRC.


Media Conversions

Need clips of a video or DVD to show in class? The Digital Media Lab in the Undergraduate Library has all the facilities to help you accomplish this.

If you need an audio cassette converted to mp3 or CD drop by Dey 110. We can convert the cassette to the desired format and make it available to your students in the LRC Media Library for a nominal fee using their One Cards.


Scanning

All of the language departments have scanners built into their copiers. Visit your department's main office to learn about accessing and using this equipment. If you need assistance with loading these scanned documents onto your Blackboard site, please drop by Dey 110.


Laptop Distribution

Our goal is to ensure that ROML-affiliated instructors that need a laptop are able to receive a laptop. The departmental laptops are all supported by OASIS, so if you run into any issues, submit a remedy ticket or call 962-HELP (4357). If you have a personal laptop, we encourage you to use that laptop and can get that setup on the campus network for you. For on demand support, you may take both personal and departmental laptops to the ITRC, located in the basement of the Undergraduate Library. Departmental laptops are to be returned at the end of your teaching appointment.

The ROML laptops are distributed using the following policy:

  1. Laptops are intended to support instruction in courses offered in the Department of Romance Languages. They are meant to be used solely for coursework, research, or writing theses and dissertations.
  2. A limited supply of laptops makes it necessary to set priorities for their distribution. To be eligible for a laptop, graduate students must be within the time limits approved for their degree program
  3. First priority goes to fixed-term faculty employed by the Department of Romance Languages and ROML graduate students in the PhD program.
  4. Second priority goes to ROML graduate students in the MA program.
  5. Third priority goes to ROML exchange students.
  6. Fourth priority goes to PhD students teaching in Romance Languages but pursuing degrees in other curricula or departments (e.g., Comparative Literature, City and Regional Planning, Education).
  7. Fifth priority goes to MA students teaching in Romance Languages but pursuing degrees in other curricula or departments (e.g., Comparative Literature, City and Regional Planning, Education).
