University Educational Technologies Steering Committee

Purpose

The purpose of the University Educational Technologies Steering Committee is to better understand and explore the relationship between technology and pedagogy as it relates to advancing the institutional mission of excellence in teaching and learning. The responsibilities of this committee will include but not be limited to:

  • Scanning the external environment, either directly or through conversations with colleagues, for new developments and opportunities in educational and instructional technologies.
  • Meeting regularly and participating in early round vendor presentations to examine and explore the utility of those technologies that hold promise to meet an identified institutional need.
  • Making recommendations regarding the adoption of new technologies (pilot recommendation vs. enterprise wide recommendation)

Membership

The formation of this committee is a result of a partnership between the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) and Academic IT department in the University Information Technology Services (UITS). Membership on this committee represents both the academic and technical communities at UConn.
