The Office of Operations & Technology provides technical support and guidance to faculty and staff within the School of Education & Health Sciences.


We enhance learning and teaching through the design, development, and maintenance of the technology-enhanced learning infrastructure for the school. We also acquire and offer operations support for computer hardware and software as well as other equipment, including projectors, laptops and cameras for classroom and other professional use.
