Technology Mentoring Program

Technology Mentoring Program for Faculty Members

Today, educational environments are also affected by the rapid changes in information and technology, and the use of technology in learning-teaching processes is becoming more common. In this direction, it seems important to develop the technology-related competencies of all teaching staff in order to use technology effectively in improving teaching in higher education.

Hacettepe University Sustainable Teaching and Learning Center (STL) implements the “Technology Mentoring for Faculty Members” program in order to improve the technological skills of our faculty members and to support their effective use of technology in their classes. In this program, it is aimed that the successful students of the departments in the field of Informatics and the faculty members who need technology education are matched, and the mentor-faculty couples work on technology-related activities on a regular basis every week. Sample activities include developing interactive materials, creating and editing videos, using the Learning Management System, increasing interaction in live lessons, graphic and web design.

The schedule of the process, which is planned to last 5 weeks in total, is as follows:
