The Tech Atelier is a multimedia development studio designed to facilitate the creation of digital-technology-based materials for curricular and research projects. Officially inaugurated in September 2007, this facility provides state-of-the-art resources for integrating digital technology into teaching and research.
Tech Atelier resources consist of:
1) a studio space in Patterson Office Tower (POT) with fixed digital workstations
2) a collection of circulating portable digital equipment
Since its inception, the Atelier has supported a broad range of projects including: creation of audio testing materials; authoring of multimedia online exercises; filming and editing of cultural materials; video recording of student teaching sessions; preservation of teaching and research materials from older formats (VHS, audio cassette, film, and slides); development of digital humanities grant projects; production of audio and video proceedings of professional conferences.
Originally designed and administered from the office of the Director of Language Technology in the Departments of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (MCLLC) and Hispanic Studies (HS) to enhance the digital infrastructure supporting teaching and research in languages, literatures, and cultures at UK, the Atelier is now managed by A&S Computing Services as a part of their expanded operations in multimedia development.
The Director of Language Technology assists users in conceptualizing digital media projects that make use of the technological resources of the Tech Atelier.
The staff and student employees in the A&S Computing Services divisions of Online Education, Instructional Technology, and Special Effects manage the daily operations of the Atelier and assist users of the facility with the creation and implementation of their projects.
