Educational Technology Users Group


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 five 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 will be held online via Zoom. Prior to the 2020 pandemic, ETUG met monthly or once per term in October, March, and July.  Since the pandemic, the group has met weekly in 2020 and shifted to bi-weekly in 2021. Additionally, the TechLearn team sends out monthly newsletters to keep ETUG members informed.

Member Groups

The ETUG is comprised of four major areas: Information Technology, University Libraries, the Provost's Office, and school representatives.  All of Pepperdine's schools (Graziadio, GSEP, Law, Public Policy, and Seaver) are members of ETUG.  ETUG membership is only available for academic support staff and faculty.
