Teaching, Learning and Technology Centers (hereafter referred to as TLTCs) often serve diverse purposes. Some cite as their goal to help faculty use technology more productively in the classroom while others serve as a center for digital writing or a center for faculty and students to collaborate on digital projects. Still others aim to strengthen faculty teaching and research through a variety of strategies and programs, not exclusively focusing upon the utilization of new technologies.
1). What does a TLTC look like?
A presentation might explore questions such as where is the center physically housed? Does it have a web presence? Where is the web presence housed? Who does the center report to? How was it founded? Who “works” at the center? What is the title of the TLTC on your campus? How was the title determined?
2). What audience does a TLTC serve?
A presentation might explore questions such as who uses the center (faculty, staff, students, community?) and how these groups are encouraged to use the center (campus, community advertising?). Also, how can many different clients be served effectively within limited resource budgets?
3). What does a TLTC do?
A presentation might explore questions such as what is the overall goal of the TLTC, what types of projects it does, what training workshops are offered, and what is its mission on campus.
4). Why do we need TLTCs on campus?
In other words what makes TLTCs unique? Tell us about some unique projects your campus is doing with its TLTC.
When submitting your abstract via the SEED website (www.findlay.edu KEYWORD: SEED), please let us know of any technological needs you have and if you would like to do a presentation/paper or participate in a poster session. Depending on response we may have room for a variety of types of sessions.
We look forward to seeing you in Findlay!
