Appointment: Allison Van Beek - Instructional Technology Specialist

We are delighted to welcome Allison Van Beek, our new Instructional Technology Specialist in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering.

Her educational background is in Information Studies, which sparked her interest for using technology as a tool in the classroom. Allison joins us from the Faculty of Medicine where she designed systems and websites with a focus on usability and user experience. During her five years at UofT, Allison has promoted and supported a number of technologies used in an educational setting, including Blackboard, Echo360 (lecture capture), Moodle, Wordpress, survey tools, blogs and wikis. She is also an expert on Drupal.

Allison can help you sort through the sometimes overwhelming selection of new (and established) educational technology offerings and can assist you in selecting a good match for your pedagogical needs or help you implement new features to your existing tools.
