Because the success of teaching and learning technologies requires both technical and academic expertise, LTAC is co-chaired by one person representing Information Technology Services and one person representing Academic Affairs.
The current co-chairs of the Learning Technologies Advisory Committee are Kyle Collins (Assistant VP - Technology Transformation) and Debra Rudder Lohe (Director of the Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning). The co-chairs facilitate the work of LTAC; they serve in ex officio, non-voting roles.
Current Committee Members
A list of the 2017-2018 LTAC members may be found here: LINK.
LTAC members serve as essential conduits for information between the area they represent and the committee. LTAC membership, therefore, is intended to be representational for faculty and student members of the committee. Those who agree to serve are expected to:
- Attend monthly LTAC meetings
- Share information about LTAC's work (e.g., decisions made, questions considered, emerging issues, opportunities for feedback, etc.) with the college/school in a manner that ensures broad knowledge-sharing (e.g., through the dean, faculty council, etc.)
- Understand and represent the concerns of the college/school regarding technologies used for teaching and learning (e.g., course management system/Blackboard, lecture capture system, classroom technologies, etc.)
Any LTAC members who find they cannot meet these expectations should talk with their dean about appointing a new representative. The commitment to attend monthly meetings is especially important, as the majority of LTAC's work will occur during these meetings.
The committee meets monthly during the academic year. During the 2017-2018 academic year, LTAC will meet on the third Wednesday of the month, 2:30-4:00 p.m., in the Vitale Board Room (Cook Hall room 340).
