Academic Technology Advisory Committee
Chair: Tim James
What is the Academic Technology Advisory Committee?
The CSN Academic Technology Advisory Committee works with the Chief Information Officer (CIO) to address short-term and long-term technology requirements of the college. The committee and CIO elicit, gather, and examine input from all areas on their immediate and future potential technology needs.
The committee also oversees allocation and distribution of funds made available to the committee. The committee establishes guidelines and forms for submitting technology funding requests. The committee prioritizes all technology requests based on instructional and curriculum needs, and then matches those, when possible, to budgetary resources. The Technology Committee recommends Technology Fee budget allocations for prioritized requests based on how well each request is perceived to study student needs and aligns with the college's overall technology priorities.
The Technology Committee will work in cooperation with the CIO to develop and implement a technology master plan in accordance with the UCSN's SCS and the Board of Regents strategic directions. The technology master plan includes the mission, vision, goals and objectives of the short- and long-term technology needs at CSN.
The committee will look at pedagogical issues associated with technology across the curriculum and investigate academic-specific technologies (hardware and software). The Technology Committee will recommend to the CAPE Advisory Board on professional development and training of pedagogical use of technology and make recommendations to the Technology Executive Council.
