Met with Lynn, Gail, and Jesse. Lynn has delivered cameras and headsets to Faculty Champions (she gave Janice sets for Ann McNicol and Nancy Watkins). Faculty Champions will contact their Campus Instructional Technologist if they need assistance with hardware installation or SPOCing.
The ePortfolio evaluation (ANGEL, LiveText, and Chalk & Wire) is scheduled for Wednesday, April 9 beginning at 1:00 p.m. at the Seminole Campus in UP 301. Lynn has drafted an Evaluation Scorecard. Jesse will take a closer look to refine the scorecard.
Technology topics are welcomed for this summer’s Mini-Conference, for example “RLO’s,” “Critical Thinking and Technology,” etc.
The online materials for the two Critical Thinking Institutes that Janice has/will develop will be relayed to Provosts once Nosich’s is complete. These will be provided via an ANGELtraining link from the Gateway Web site in order to promote the site.
Luis created a WordPress blog, and Lynn is investigating if WordPress will work for housing RLO’s. Nancy Doolittle has agreed to give Lynn some pointers with this.
The Instructional Technologists are commenting on a checklist/guidelines for evaluating RLO’s. Janice read off the list of standards and these seemed well-received by those in attendance. Lynn confirmed that no scoring was necessary, and felt just having N/A, No, Somewhat, and Yes was appropriate. Janice will forward to the Quality Enhancement Team as soon as possible.
