Journal History

The Journal of Teaching and Learning with Technology (JoTLT) is an international journal dedicated to exploring efforts to enhance student learning in higher education through the use of technology. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss what does and does not work when using technology in postsecondary instruction.

Over the last few decades, faculty have progressively added more and more sophisticated technology into their courses.  Today, the variety of technology and the creative ways in which technology is being used is simply astonishing, whether in-class, online, or in a blended format.  In the final analysis, however, it isn’t whether our students  - or faculty members - like the technology that matters but whether the addition of these technological tools results in or expands access to quality student learning. JoTLT will play a prominent role in helping higher education professionals better understand and answer these questions.
