Curriculum and Instructional Resources
The TLC offers a wide range of support to UIC instructors. The TLC works with faculty to explore how various pedagogical strategies, instructional media, and/or other teaching tools can help meet individual instructional goals. The TLC collaborates with instructors to develop custom assessment strategies to help measure and report instructional outcomes and processes. Whether it be assessing how incorporating multimedia into class presentations influences student learning or discussing how adopting a problem-based learning approach can affect course dynamics, the TLC strives to ensure that instructional media helps faculty meet their instructional goals.

The ITL offers support of faculty projects involving instructional technology. The ITL provides training, seminars, and consultation to faculty wishing to use computer technology in instruction. The ITL is an outstanding resource for matching instructional goals to specific software packages and products and helping faculty become proficient in using those packages.
The Office of External Education provides leadership and support of online and blended courses, programs, and certificates. External Education offers instructional design support and project management expertise to faculty interested in redesigning courses to make them online or blended (partially online and partially face-to-face). It is strongly recommended that UIC faculty interested in online or blended curriculum and instruction take advantage of the expertise of External Education in planning their proposals.
