About OIRT

The Office of Instructional and Research Technology provides coordination for use of information technology throughout the university community in support of instruction and research. As part of the Office of Information Technology, OIRT can meet with departments to review research and instructional IT services at Rutgers.

Who are we and what do we do?

We are university staff and part-time instructors who are passionate about engaging students in their own learning, whether in the classroom, research laboratory, or their co-curricular lives. We do this by working with faculty and staff to encourage communication and collaboration among faculty, students, and staff through the use of modern technology.

How can we help you?

OIRT staff are knowledgeable about technology and pedagogy and how they interact. We believe that effective teaching and learning should drive technology choices, and not the other way around. Consequently, our focus is on creating learning environments that engage learners with each other and with course material.
