Technology Mentor Program—Seeking Faculty for Fall 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 a course-oriented, peer-based program modeled on the successful SAW program. Paired with a particular faculty member, under the guidance of an RIS professional, 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 (especially Web design, video editing, or WebCT) and are enthusiastic about teaching and education. Duties and workflows related to a course are likely to vary and might include holding office hours for project consultation with students enrolled in the course; offering training workshops on specific software or equipment associated with assignments; brainstorming with the faculty member on the creative uses of particular technologies to meet course objectives; providing faculty feedback on the effectiveness of a particular technology-based assignment or tool used in the classroom; attending the course regularly, engaging in course readings, and contributing to class interactions; and developing prototypes or models of a technology-based tool that will be used for instruction in the course. Faculty interested in exploring this program further should complete the faculty mentor application located at www.mtholyoke.edu/lits/ris/techmentor. Please contact Julie Habjan Boisselle (jboissel, x2795) or Owen Ellard (oellard, x3023) for more information.
