University System of New Hampshire (USNH) Academic Technology is a shared initiative among the four institutions' (Granite State College, Keene State College, Plymouth State University and the University of New Hampshire) Academic Affairs departments and a partnership managed by the Academic Technology Steering Committee (ATSC.) We are a sustainable support system that encourages and supports faculty to create 21st century classrooms that incorporate technology and rich media to enhance the teaching and learning.
We are committed to Open Education (OE)- OE involves adopting and developing open textbooks to drive down costs; improving learning outcomes, throughput and completion rates, and student engagement; improving higher education’s capacity to prepare graduates for the needs of a changing workforce; and developing pedagogical approaches to serve our students and our state. Open Education aligns with USNH's efforts to increase access and affordability around post-secondary education in our state.
We host the annual Academic Technology Institute (ATI) - an event that brings faculty together from all four USNH institutions to explore the pedagogy, tools, and new thinking around using technology in course design.
