Appendix 14: The Role of the TLTR at SCSU in the Future

This TLTR document is part of strategic planning for SCSU. Just as strategic planning is a continual process, planning for technology use requires a mechanism for updating and refining any document like this to keep it current and useful. The TLTR -- the Teaching, Learning and Technology Roundtable itself -- will be that mechanism.

The TLTR will continue to meet to assess and evaluate the proposed technology plan. As in the past, it will be composed of representatives from the various constituencies on campus (e.g., students, faculty, staff and administrators). The TLTR will inform the Strategic Planning Committee and make recommendations to Academic Affairs.

The functions of the TLTR will be to

  • review the progress of the implementation of the various aspects of the plan
  • review and comment on unit or departmental goals for technology
  • review and comment on unit or departmental uses for technology
  • discuss and make recommendations about any changes to the technology plan based on changes in technology
  • discuss and make recommendations about any changes to the technology plan based on changes in strategic planning
  • discuss and make recommendations about any changes to the technology plan based on assessment of technology effectiveness
  • disseminate information about the use of technology at SCSU to the campus community and the external community as well as to the Minnesota State Universities and Colleges (MnSCU) office
  • encourage further discussion on the future implications of technology in higher education and in the success of our graduates
