University Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) (McIver)

The TLC provides instructional support for students and faculty at UNCG through three units and the Office of the Director.

Creative Services provides production of audio, video, graphic, and photographic materials for use by faculty in instruction and research. Staff will consult with faculty concerning desktop publishing and multimedia production and presentation.

Classroom Technical Support provides support services to faculty, including maintenance of instructional equipment and training in its operation, consultation on instructional technology systems, and installation of these systems.

Media Services provides services related to the purchase and circulation of instructional videotapes and equipment, and the sale of selected instructional supplies. Limited loan of instructional equipment and instructional videotapes are available to students with written permission on departmental letterhead. An entertainment collection of more than 18,000 feature audio visual titles is available for free loan to students who register for this service. Some restrictions may apply.

The Office of the Director assists faculty in enhancing teaching skills, improving courses, and resolving instructional problems. The office sponsors seminars, workshops, teleconferences, and individual consultation. In addition, the office administers several grants including the Advancement of Teaching and Learning Grants (ATL), the Faculty Instructional Development Mini-Grants, and the John and Mary Hamil Fund for Innovation in Undergraduate Education. The office also provides support for UNCG’s distance education initiative through administration of the Blackboard course management software and optical mark scanning for test scoring and data collection.
