Instructional Technology Committee

Committee Charge

Responsible to: Academic Senate and liaison to District Technology Committee

The Instructional Technology Committee (ITC) provides guidelines and leadership in the development and review of instructional technology for Educational programs.  This process is through program review which provides peer review for classroom planning of software and platform implementation.  The committee works in collaboration with the District Technology Committee in support of requested infrastructure to support classroom instruction and to meet college strategic goals and directions.

Functions and Responsibilities:
  • Provides guidelines and leadership in the development of the instructional technology plan for Educational Programs.
  • Provides oversight for ranking software/hardware and emerging technologies for Educational programs.
  • Serves as technology advisory committee for the Faculty Resource Center (FRC).
  • Make recommendations for funding of requests to acquire computer technology.
  • Reviews the impact grant and initiative proposals make on college inventory and how these proposals take advantage of emerging technology.
  • Provides guidelines for campus-wide software and hardware platform upgrades and decisions.
Committee Responsibilities:

Committee membership is an important component in our "service to the college." Committee members are expected to attend regularly scheduled meetings, to actively participate, to contribute to and share fairly in the workload and responsibilities of the Committee, to consult and seek input as needed from the Division members they represent in order to represent the needs and concerns of the Division as a whole, and to maintain communication with Committee Chairs and Senate Representatives.

Advocacy:

Your role as a division representative is to represent the point (s) of view of your Division. Report back to your division meetings to inform your colleagues of changes and discussions that may affect them. Bring questions and concerns back to the committee so we can hear all sides of the debate.

In initial discussions or rankings, you should feel free to present and press division views. Keep in mind the overall good of the student, faculty community and/or the college at large. Use your judgment to contribute broader ideas and viewpoints to encourage debate and consensus in order to make recommendations to Senate and/or the District Technology Committee.

The Academic Senate's Instructional Technology Committee is a standing group of the District Technology Committee (est. 2002).  ITC will continue to be an Academic Senate Committee and function accordingly with respect to the determination of its membership and reporting relationships to the Academic Senate. The District Technology committee is an advisory to the College Planning Council, which in turn is the advisory group to the College President.  Final authority rests with the President and Board of Trustees.

In the alternative, each division may designate, through their Senator (s), one committee member to be the voting representative for that division.
