Technology Mentor Program—Seeking a Few Faculty for Spring 2005
This may be the environment in which to try something new in your course. New in 2004, the Technology Mentor Program is a LITS initiative designed to offer additional creative and collaborative support to foster the effective integration of technology into the curriculum. Inspired by the SAW Program, the Technology Mentor Program is a course-oriented, peer-based model. Under the guidance of a research and instructional support (RIS) professional, mentors work closely with faculty members and students to support related technology needs. RIS looks to pair faculty with students who are comfortable with technology and are enthusiastic about teaching and learning.

Duties and workflows within the role are likely to vary from course to course. A mentor’s specific responsibilities will depend largely on faculty needs and course objectives. For example, throughout the semester, a mentor may hold office hours for project consultation and troubleshooting with students enrolled in the course; offer training sessions on specific software or equipment associated with assignments; brainstorm with the faculty member on the creative uses of technologies and provide feedback on the effectiveness of a technology-based assignment; and develop prototypes or models of a technology-based tool to enhance student learning in the course. Faculty interested in exploring this program further should complete the faculty mentor application at Please contact Julie Habjan Boisselle (jboissel x2795) or Owen Ellard (oellard, x3023) for more information.
