EGARC provides instructors with access to and training in new instructional technologies. We also provide technical support for grant and research projects focusing on languages, cultures and the use of technology in the humanities classroom. This support can range from the use of portable equipment for collecting materials, to scripting and graphic design assistance for web-based projects, to basic audio and video editing, to consultation on best practices. Faculty interested in pursuing such projects are encouraged to meet with the Director early in the planning process to find out what resources are available both at EGARC and across campus.
