Critical Thinking Institutes
Plans for the Fall Critical Thinking Institute are at the top of the agenda. Things are coming together. The ITs should not feel like the must go to the beginning session, but should get to the labs they are presenting in a bit early since they will not be used in the morning. The machines have Office ’07 installed. When you get to the parking garage, just be sure to tell them you are coming to the Critical Thinking Institute.
Narrowing the Gulf is the Spring Critical Thinking Institute. A campaign is being started to help people to understand this.
Right now there is WITS form (https://it.spcollege.edu/cfsurveys/survey.cfm?su_id=2727)
that can be used to submit RLOs. This is linked off of the gateway website. To share these becomes a manual process. Is there a way that this can be connected to the Project Eagle III grant deliverables? Maybe Nancy or Alan can help to figure this out.
Lynn was under the assumption that the college has already spent a chunk of money on ANGEL ePortfolio that could be used, even though it does not do all that is expected until ANGEL 7.4. Jesse kind of feels that the existing tool really isn’t what is needed. Gail shared that this just might not need to be a deliverable at this time, especially because of resources and the economy. Further discussion will happen on this.
