Office of Information Technology, Marcom and Facilities

The Office of Information Technology, Marcom and Facilities is comprised of multiple teams and groups working to create a solid, smooth foundation for communication, technology, and facilities resources in The College of Education and Human Ecology (EHE).

IT Services

Network and client computing services are responsible for keeping the computer you use working properly, the software that you use kept up to date and the servers that you use to store your data always working for the College.

Academic Technology

The EHE OIT Academic Technology team partners with instructors and teaching assistants, staff, and students of the college to create meaningful learning experiences in the areas of instructional design, educational technology, classroom technology, and multimedia production. We work with you to enhance your teaching practices, assist in designing a course from start to finish, produce engaging multimedia content, train you in integrating university tools and other learning technologies, and make your ideas a reality. We’re a group of educators, designers, technologists, and videographers dedicated to improving teaching and learning within EHE and beyond.

Facilities

The College of Education and Human Ecology currently operates in 14 different buildings, on and around, The Ohio State University’s Columbus campus. We support the college’s agenda through the space management and planning of administrative, academic, and research facilities. Our goal is to deliver facility planning and space allocation that provides work and study venues in which students, faculty, and staff will flourish.

Marketing and Communications

We share the news about our outstanding people, programs, research and activities such as events and ongoing grant projects. Information is shared on this website, in print publications such as the Inspire magazine for alumni and friends, and in e-newsletters such as the monthly In Touch for alumni and friends.

In addition, we work with print, television, radio and online media to match them with experts to interview for breaking news. The College of Education and Human Ecology each year is cited an average of 100 times by print media, such as the Columbus Dispatch, New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Times of India, plus radio and web segments on NPR, CNN and other outlets. Our experts are invited to appear on nationally televised programs such as "Dr. Oz" and "Dateline NBC." Countless blogs and websites also carry our news.
