The Academic Technologies Advisory Council assists the Provost's Office and Chief Information Officer in setting directions and priorities for developing, implementing, and evaluating instructional technology directions for the university. Proposals for the Innovations in Teaching with Technology Awards are accepted in the fall. Applicants are encouraged to get started on them now. ATAC provides feedback and assist in development of proposals. For more information, contact maggie-jesse@uiowa.edu or visit the award program’s website.

The Innovations in Teaching with Technology Awards help fund innovative applications of instructional technologies that impact student success and retention. Applicants are encourage to use emerging instructional technologies such as augmented reality, crowd-sourcing, electronic books (ePub/eText), game-based learning, geo-everything, gesture-based computing, learning analytics, mobile computing, personal web, open content, semantic-aware applications, simulation/simulators for instruction, smart objects, social networking, visual data analysis, and video (e.g., "grassroots video"). For a description on each of these and other technologies used for instruction, see: "Horizon Reports: Emerging Technologies for Teaching and Learning."
