Educational Technology Toolkit now available

August 16, 2023


The Educational Technology Toolkit is designed to support educators and educational support staff in choosing, comparing, and finding information related to various educational technologies at Queen’s. The toolkit is available on the Centre for Teaching and Learning website under the Resources tab (

Features of the Ed Tech Toolkit include:

  • A list of over 30 educational tools reviewed by educational support staff across different faculties, disciplines, and skillsets to provide sound pedagogical guidance, practical implementation and support advice, as well as the most up-to-date information on licensing, privacy, security and accessibility considerations.
  • Instructors and educational support staff can request to have a new educational tool reviewed by the Ed Tech Toolkit Working Group.

The Ed Tech Toolkit Working Group brings together educational support staff from multiple faculties, as well as staff from the Centre for Teaching and Learning, Queen’s University Library, and IT Services, who apply their diverse skillsets to examine each tool, prioritize and organize reviewers for educational technology review requests, and maintain the list of tools.

Educational technology tools are reviewed using a rubric built upon the Rubric for eLearning Tool Evaluation developed by Educational Developer Lauren Anstey and Gavan Watson, Vice-Provost of Teaching and Learning at Queen’s. This rubric also includes Queen’s-specific criteria such as LMS integration and security assessment status. In the coming months, the Ed Tech Toolkit Working Group will continue to develop this rubric to include additional criteria around considerations for sustainability, equity and more.

If you would like to learn more or volunteer to become a reviewer, please contact The Ed Tech Working Group.
