Project SET

Implemented in 2002, Project SET (Sharing Educational Technology) was the first initiative of the ETC. Project SET awarded small grants to faculty, graduate students, and instructional resource professionals to develop web-based instructional modules on topics to assist faculty to integrate technology into their teaching practice. These modules are an open resource available to anyone with internet access.

The ETC was established in 2001 to benefit faculty by permitting them to learn new processes and practices with the convenience of online learning's anytime, anyplace access. Energized by the University's charge to increase and advance the use of technology for teaching and learning, faculty are increasingly interested in receiving guidance for transitioning their instructional materials to online environments. In the 2001 UT statewide Faculty Instructional Technology Survey, over 90% of UT system faculty respondents indicated that they are interested in integrating technology into their teaching practice. This overwhelming interest by faculty has motivated UT campuses to look for new ways to provide faculty with the requisite resources, services, and support essential to developing quality technology-enhanced instruction. The ETC provides this support by sponsoring several innovative initiatives.
