Teaching and Learning Technology Committee

The Teaching and Learning Technology Committee (TLTC) serves as the forum for discussion, advice, and action on the implementation of teaching and learning technologies; serves as a discussion venue for evaluating and making recommendations on classroom space throughout the College; and is a focal point for input on campus instructional technology plans. Committee members bring the requests and concerns of their constituents to the forum for consideration and response. The TLTC makes planning recommendations to the Faculty Affairs Committee, Faculty Assembly and campus leadership regarding teaching and learning technologies.

The TLTC is comprised of one core group and three subcommittee groups. The main group will be named the Core Group and will oversee committee activities. Three subcommittees are established to support the work of the Core Group. The names of the subcommittees are Instructional Technology Group, Professional Development Group, and Classroom Group. The chair of each subcommittee will be one of the selected core group faculty committee members.
