Technology Innovation in Learning and Teaching

Welcome to Technology Innovation in Learning and Teaching (TILT) at the Alexandria Campus!

TILT integrates educational technology into the curriculum to help faculty, staff and students achieve their teaching and learning goals. TILT staff support educational technologies that contribute to NOVA’s academic excellence by increasing student engagement with course materials, supporting active learning strategies, fostering communication and collaboration, streamlining course administration, and developing students’ skills for future learning and work. TILT staff continually research, monitor and evaluate the impact and effectiveness of educational technologies on the teaching and learning experiences of faculty and students, and share these findings with the campus community.

Our services include individual and group training, scheduled workshops, equipment check-out and setup, video assistance, graphic design and web assistance.
