DoIT Instructional Technology Team
DoIT’s Instructional Technology team received UMBC’s 2021 “Job Well Done” award for the Planning Instructional Variety in Online Teaching (PIVOT). The PIVOT initiative also received an Effective Practice award from the Online Learning Consortium.

The most efficient way to contact the Instructional Technology team for questions, support, or to request a phone or in-person consultation is to submit an RT ticket. Submitting a ticket ensures that your question will be answered as quickly as possible by the appropriate staff member and allows the Instructional Technology Team to see and solve common issues and questions.
