Overview

This collection contains the records of Educational Technology Services.

Biographical / Historical

Tufts Educational Technology Services (ETS) is a department within Tufts Technology Services. Members of ETS are trained to help Tufts faculty and staff of courses to incorporate technology into their academic programs. ETS also leads workshops throughout the school-year for faculty to learn new technologies. As of 2017, the department is led by Paul Bergen, Director of Educational Technology and Learning Spaces. Starting in 2010 and in following years, the group quickly gained importance across all four Tufts campus’, as integrating technology into the classroom became vital for engaging and connecting with students. Projects undertaken have included supporting instructors with “Instructional Continuity” when a class is cancelled, as well as helping faculty adjust to changes in university-wide learning management systems. ETS has also helped instructors to make course resources accessible to students, aiding with the publishing of lecture videos and notes through different platforms.
