In March 2000, The Innovative Technology Center implemented the Teaching
With Technology (TWT) grant program by awarding grants to 40 faculty members
representing 25 departments. Each grantee was provided a choice of either
laptop computer or a digital camera and a $2000 one-time salary supplement
to develop an interdisciplinary instructional module for delivery via the
World Wide Web.
In 2002, the focus of the Teaching With Technology grant program was
successfully shifted from individual faculty members to departmental faculty
teams. From 2001-2005, more than 75 faculty members have participated in the
Teaching With Technology grant program, resulting in the development of
approximately 100 instructional modules for delivery via the World Wide Web.2000 | 2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006

Wireless computing and mobile learning continue to evolve as powerful tools to enhance communication, collaboration, and information management. As the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, enters its fifth year of hosting a pervasive academic wireless network, the ITC continues to collaborate with faculty to investigate best practices for teaching and learning, establish innovative teaching practices, and explore research possibilities. Over the past 5 years, the ITC has partnered with faculty from 21 departments in 4 colleges to exploit the existing UT wireless network and incorporate relevant educational technologies.
Participants in the WII project integrate wireless technology in their course for a minimum of one quarter of the semester, participate in a summer institute that incorporates pedagogical consultation with individualized training, submit status reports to the ITC WII implementation team and the other WII participants, conduct pre- and post-course student assessments, and submit a final report.
Previous projects have incorporated equipment ranging from wireless laptops, PDAs, and Tablet PCs to digital cameras and GPS units. Specific activities from the past few years have begun to shift from a classroom-based, individual model to ones more group and field based, such as capturing real-world data (pictures, coordinates, prices, etc.) and relaying or storing it for later analysis amongst team members.2001| 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | Wireless Instructional Initiatives whitepaper [PDF]
