SUNY Tools of Engagement Project (TOEP)

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

In 2016-2017, SUNY Empire State College's Center for Mentoring and Learning, and the Educational and Emerging Technologies office, are providing the opportunity for ESC colleagues to participate in the State University of New York Tools of Engagement Project (TOEP).

What is TOEP?

TOEP is an on-demand discovery learning professional development model. The goal of TOEP is to encourage faculty and staff to explore and reflect upon the use of emerging technology tools to expand tech-infused pedagogy.

The TOEP self-directed professional development opportunity gives faculty and staff a platform to experiment with cutting-edge technologies and provides knowledge to integrate these tools into the aching and learning to engage students and improve learning outcomes. Self-directed activities encourage faculty and staff to be lifelong learners, as they become familiar with blogging, wikis, audio, video, e-portfolios, online collaboration, gamification, simulation, and the latest web-based instructional technology tools. After acquiring deeper knowledge about how to use these tools, instructors will become more adept at embedding 21st century skills into teaching to meet the needs and expectations of today's students. Those in the instructional community will then be able to use emerging technology tools to engage students in learning and go beyond the use of traditional teaching strategies.
