TEC : hub & DERC
UWSP's TEC : hub is a resource for faculty interested in teaching and learning with technology.
The TEC : hub provides one-on-one faculty support and consultation, and small group workshops.
The TEC : hub also partners with UWSP's Center for Academic Excellence to offer a summer curricular redesign program for faculty wishing to move their face-to-face courses online.
The Distance Education Resource Center (DERC) is housed within our Technology for Evolving Curriculum (TEC:hub) facility in the LRC. The DERC is comprised of our two Instructional Support personnel, Mary Mielke and Sean Ruppert, and the (soon to be hired) Distance Education Program Manager (DEPM). The facility serves as a “one-stop” centrally-located resource for faculty, staff, and students for information and support for Distance Education courses and related technologies
