Student Access to Technology
With the shift to remote or mixed-modes of teaching, students and faculty will be relying more heavily on technology for their classes. The Student Access to Technology Form is a survey template designed by TLT for instructors to distribute to their students to easily gain an understanding of the technology their students have access to during the semester. The results of the survey may also be shared back to the students to efficiently facilitate group work.
