Faculty Focus recently shared a free set of articles on Teaching With Technology, written by John Orlando, PhD. The articles are short and helpful - I think the advice may be of help to faculty and staff at DePaul. You can download a copy by following this link.

On the 29th October, 2011, I gave a one-hour session on “Essential Technology Tools for Teaching” as part of the monthly Technology Tuesdays. Above is an abbreviated video (about 19 minutes in duration) that shares some of the essentials of what was covered. Move information (and a PDF handout) can be found on the Technology Tools page.
The upcoming Technology Tuesdays session will be on iClickers.
