What is Teaching and Learning Technologies?

It’s an exciting time for teaching and learning in higher education. This is as true at Harvard as anywhere. And with so many opportunities for learning in and outside the classroom, technology plays an essential role. Enter the Teaching and Learning Technologies (TLT) program. A Harvard IT strategic program, TLT provides:

  • a set of core technologies to support teaching and learning
  • the ability to extend this core through custom component development
  • the ability to extract data across courses for educational research

We are partnering with stakeholders across Harvard to advance this initiative. Join us!
