Undergraduate Peer Mentors in Technology
Undergraduate Peer Mentors in Technology (UPMTs) are pre-service teachers hand-selected by the program coordinator for their extraordinary technology skills. The UPMTs work to support their fellow undergraduates by providing training on various types of instructional technology, mentor peers in completing technology intensive projects for TLAC courses, and by assisting EDCI 365 courses in various ways.
They are available to assist students for help with instructional technology or technology-rich projects in the UPMT office, room 413 in Harrington Tower. We would encourage you to schedule an appointment with us, as this will help us prepare for your specific need.
Hours of Availability
Howdy, TLAC Preservice Teachers! Though our TLAC Tech Lab is closed, UPMTs are continuing to support EDCI 365 students and instructors remotely. If you need assistance, please email your assigned UPMT through the eCampus portal and they will respond. Take care, Ags.
