Bush IT Meeting
March 10, 2005
Faculty Center - 9:00 AM
Engin Sungur, Pam Gades, Paul Myers, Karen Johnson,Katherine Benson, Scott Esler, and Linda Pederson
A report copy was distributed to each member for discussion. Engin noted a few responses from faculty were missing from the report.
Engin discussed the Bush Group and MGT meetings he attended with the group. He said the MGT is in charge of the assessment and evaluation of the overall grant. Members thought it would be best for the survey to stay on campus, not to go to the MGT - would have better control of the survey. Discussed additional survey questions, such as
- Are you waiting for help?
- Where are you stuck at?
Discussed putting WebForm on our site - would send reminder to participant to go to link and fill out the form monthly. Results would be e-mailed to individual IT group or posted on SharePoint. Discussed creating instructions on how to create WebForm for faculty. Scott will talk to Pam and work on creating instructions to put on web site.
Engin noted that he had a discussion with Pam Solvie & Greg Thorson - they shared interesting ideas on Diverse Learning styles.
- Needs to be set up - Pam S. and Greg Thorson have agreed to be in the consulting group - need one additional member. Engin suggested Tom Johnson as the third member - he will talk with Tom about this. Discussed what each would be responsible for:
Pam Solvie - Education Site
Greg Thorson - Application site of pedagogy
Tom Johnson - Learning Styles (if he agrees to be part of group)
- Assign projects for consulting group - provide input we have received.
- Consulting group will consist of three faculty Members (Pam Solvie, Greg Thorson, and third member?) 2 staff (Karen Johnson, Pam Gades - Engin will talk with their supervisors) 4 students ( Scott Esler, Andrew Anderson (Minh Vo) 3 students are needed, Engin will talk to students)
Scott/Pam will work on the description of each project, instruction for WebForm, and Matrix for the web.
