Educational Technology Users Group

Educational Technology Users Group at Pepperdine University.


Pepperdine University's Educational Technology Users Group (ETUG) was founded in 2006 to support the institutional learning management system but quickly expanded to cover all educational technologies offered by the University. The group meets to discuss key issues and projects for the University and each of its schools. This group aims to promote communication between all schools and encourage the advancement of Pepperdine University's educational technology landscape to improve teaching and learning both in and out of the classroom.

Meetings and Special Events

Meetings and special events will be held in a flexible format, making in-person or online options available for attendance. ETUG meetings occur 3-4 times a year, along with special events occasionally scheduled based on topics of interest. During the height and preceding years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the group met weekly in 2020 and shifted to bi-weekly in 2021 before returning to a quarterly schedule in 2023. Additionally, the TechLearn team sends out monthly newsletters to keep ETUG members informed of workshops, technology tips & tricks, and to promote continued communication.

Membership and Eligibility

ETUG is comprised of faculty and academic support staff. The core member groups include:

  • Faculty and academic support staff of all Pepperdine schools

  • University Libraries

ETUG membership is limited to only academic support staff and faculty.
