This symposium aims to enhance the UW System's planning process for infusing instructional technologies into teaching by seeking the perspectives of faculty members and administrators from across the System. Two nominated individuals from each campus team will join their colleagues to examine models for faculty development and curriculum integration from institutions in and out of Wisconsin; to discuss the roles and responsibilities of System Administration, institutions, departments and individuals; and to identify incentives and rewards that will encourage departments and individuals to move forward with technology planning.

Steven Gilbert

This workshop will bring campus team members together to work on defining their institution's teaching and learning goals for information technology and to begin or advance the process of identifying strategies, including faculty development strategies, for progressing toward those goals. Participants will also be introduced to the American Association for Higher Education's Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR) program, a national program that encourages, guides, and assists individual campuses in developing their own campus-wide planning and support systems for effectively integrating technology into teaching and learning, while controlling costs. The TLTR model emphasizes broad representation of faculty and academic support services in the planning process in order to serve the needs, capabilities and preferences of a wide range of students and faculty.
