As you may know, many faculty members have leaped forward in classroom technology use at the Law Center over the past two years. Our technology team members, including Instructional Technologist, Christopher Ballantyne continue to assist faculty with the use of technology in research and teaching. We have equipped most classrooms in McDonough Hall with technology and opened some state-of-the-art teaching spaces in Hotung. More faculty members than ever before use on-line books, Courseware sites, tablet PCs, or specialized instructional software.
We are preparing a report describing instructional technology use by faculty members. To make sure that the report is accurate, we would like to meet with each faculty member to discuss what technologies they use today and what they would like to use in the future. In particular, we are interested in learning whether or not the spaces where faculty teach are equipped with adequate audiovisual technology.
You may have read in the Law Weekly or the February IS Talk electronic newsletter, or heard from the deans or Technology Users Committee members, that there will be many upgrades and disruptions this summer. During the summer months, IST will install a new email and collaboration system by Microsoft, a high-volume web server able to host several million visits per year, a high-capacity document storage system that can keep up with your productivity, and a more secure network. If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to contact me or any of my team members.
