Teaching with Technology at Duquesne
...a Professional Learning Community


The Teaching with Technology @ DUQ Professional Learning Community provides an avenue for members to engage in specialized opportunities focused on emerging educational technologies. The community, sponsored by Educational Technology, is available to all Duquesne University Full-Time and Part-Time Faculty, Staff, and Teaching Assistants.

As specialists in the Educational Technology field, Instructional Designers from the Educational Technology department will use research-based techniques to facilitate these specialized opportunities and continually collaborate with members to help the community develop.

We would love to hear from our members! If you have a suggestion for a TWT@DUQ session, please send your request to edtech@duq.edu with TWT@DUQ in the subject line.


Our Goals:

  • Members will exchange resources and information on emerging educational technologies and how they can be implemented in the classroom.
    • This information will include, but is not limited to: ideas, tips, challenges, solutions, articles, books, websites, webinars, etc.
  • Members will be able to apply the information and integrate the resources, as noted above, to their courses
  • Members will engage with each other on a regular synchronous and asynchronous basis
