Technology Mentor Program Seeking Faculty for 2005–06
New in 2004, the LITS technology mentor program is an initiative designed to offer additional creative and collaborative support to foster the effective integration of technology into the curriculum. The technology mentor program is course-oriented and peer-based, modeled on the successful SAW program. Paired with a faculty member, under the guidance of an RIS liaison, student technology mentors work closely with a faculty member and the students enrolled in her course to support related technology needs. RIS looks to pair faculty with students who are comfortable with technology and hold an enthusiasm for teaching and learning. A mentor's specific responsibilities depend largely on faculty needs and course objectives.

Curious how other faculty have integrated mentors? The following courses have incorporated mentors: Chem 101 (Chen and Gomez), English 202 (Ackmann), Geology 101 (Werner), Independent 102 (Dobosh), Independent 117 (Boisselle and Ewing), Math 251 (Morrow), Physics 303 (Hudgings), Psych 200 (Binder), Religion 230 (Grayson), Theatre 285 (Babb) and Theatre 315 (Whitworth).

Faculty interested in exploring this program should complete the faculty mentor application located at

Not sure how this program might fit with your course needs? Give us a call and we'll talk it through together. For more information, contact either Julie Habjan Boisselle (jboissel, x2795) or your RIS liaison. This may be an opportunity to try something new. The deadline is March 31.
