The charge for this group is to facilitate the process of developing a vision for the future of teaching and learning at the University, especially as it relates to the use of technology innovations.
To that end, the committee:
- promotes experimentation in the schools with technology-enhanced approaches to teaching and research, consulting broadly with faculty, students, and staff;
- identifies and promotes existing projects and future opportunities to explore and assess the pedagogical benefits associated with the use of technology to support teaching and learning objectives;
- identifies and promotes best practices for course design and instruction using technology, and for institutional support of technology-enhanced education;
- develops means for assessing technology-enhanced courses, in consultation with experts in assessment and technology-enhanced education from within or outside the University, and promotes the sharing of these assessments across the schools;
- makes recommendations for instructional technology improvements to the Teaching Technology Committee;
- educates faculty on how decisions are made in this area at NYU; and
- reviews individual schools’ initiatives in technology-enhanced education, to determine if a University-level strategy emerges and to prepare the University to respond to both challenges and opportunities that arise in this area.
