Our Services

The IDEA team provides instructional technology services to faculty and staff:

Technology Integration Consultations

Technology is a viable vehicle to deliver instruction and help students achieve. We are available to consult with faculty and staff about strategies to integrate and evaluate technology used for instruction and learning. From reviewing your syllabus for a semester-long integration to discussing how to use technology for a single project, we happily assist all Coppin faculty.

Professional Development

Building capacity in using technology in education is crucial. It helps create stronger instructional delivery and foster student academic growth and development. We provide various mechanisms of professional development for faculty:

  • Hands-on trainings and workshops
  • Online trainings, workshops, and tutorials
  • Customized workshops for departments
  • Brown-bag lunch sessions
  • One-on-one coaching


Instructional Technology Resource Center

This is your one-stop shop to help integrate technology into teaching and learning. The center is complete with scanners, media center (converts analog media to digital media), and computers to support teaching and learning. The center hours of operation will be posted and will also be available by appointment.
