Educational Technologies Center
The Educational Technologies Center provides support for the purposeful use of technology in teaching, learning and research. From the ability to try out specialized software and hardware, to offering consultation and training, we provide members of the academic community at Princeton University the tools and information they need to use technology to achieve their pedagogic goals. We host weekly technology seminars, tutorial blog entries and screencasts, and provide one-on-one consultations for faculty members and staff. View and download a list of Productive Scholar events.
