The elevator in Environment 1 (EV1) is shut down for maintenance from April 23 to May 25, 2018. During this time, the only way to access CTE’s offices on the third floor of EV1 is by the stairs. We are happy to arrange an alternative meeting place for CTE meetings if requested. For directions to our workshop spaces (EV1 241 and 242) via the elevator in EV3, please visit our Location page. We invite you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. 

Educational Technologies at Waterloo

ET@WaterlooIn 2017, CTE surveyed Waterloo instructors about educational technologies they use in their courses. Of the nearly 70 technologies that were identified, we've selected the most popular and have briefly described them below. Most of these items also have at least one friendly contact: that is, a Waterloo instructor who has used the technology and is willing to share his or her expertise and experience with other Waterloo instructors. Additionally, the reasons for using the tool -- as reported by the Waterloo instructors -- is provided in the "purposes" table for each tool. Details pertaining to the project and the data it collected are available in this report (PDF).
