Vision: Wilco Version

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 6 months ago

 

Just as with any complex endeavor, there are multiple facets that comprise Academic Technology. These include:

 

  • Academic Technology: An umbrella term encompassing technology integration into the endeavors of Academic Affairs.

 

  • Educational Technology: Support of the pedagogically effective use of technology for teaching, learning and scholarship.

 

  • Instructional Technology: Support for the development of faculty, staff and students in the effective use of technology for teaching, learning and scholarship.

 

  • Technology Infrastructure Directions in support of Instructional Technology: Identification of priorities for Academic Technology and the vision of what kinds of flexible infrastructure would be ideal for accomplishing this.

 

  • Enterprise Information Systems in support of Academic Technology: Although outside of the scope of this ATSP, these are the uses of technology that are the backbone of functions that allow smooth operations in Academic Affairs, and include, but are not limited to: student information systems, registration, integrated library system, adaptive technologies, portals, email, and web services.

 

Vision for Academic Affairs’ Academic Technology

 

1) Technology is centered on the three concepts of excellence in teaching, learning and scholarship.

2) Acknowledging that the technology landscape is one of shifting sands, but that selecting and implementing technology in one direction does not preclude future change. To this end, technology in Academic Affairs is viewed as constructivist learning and therefore will provide opportunities to choose tools within the landscape to foster diversity of educational approaches on our campus and in our curricula.

3) To engage while guiding, Academic Affairs will create “spaces” for safe, protected, rigorous, uses of technology in support of academic excellence, but with a place to experiment with emergent technologies and test out uses.

4) Integrated information literacy and technological competencies are requirements of life in society and therefore are part of the educational process and core values at Keene State College of creating citizens who are able to provide service to the community and civic engagement that support active learning and the common good.
