Faculty Committee on Technology-Enhanced Education at NYU

Committee Charge

The FTEE Committee advises the Provost’s Office on strategies and policies for technologies that support teaching and learning. This committee is particularly oriented towards future opportunities and challenges for NYU. It works closely with the Instructional Technologists Committee and the Digital Learning User Committee, two other standing committees that deal with present-day issues and concerns around teaching, learning, and technology.

The FTEE Committee:

  • represents faculty interests and concerns in choices and policies that will affect how faculty teach using digital tools
  • represents the interests of different schools in the specification and adoption of platforms for digital learning and analytics
  • promotes experimentation with new tools and approaches in the schools
  • promotes research on the pedagogical benefits of those tools and approaches
  • proposes and recommends means of informing faculty on the availability and use of new tools and approaches
  • proposes and recommends incentive structures and contractual requirements for faculty engaged in new uses of these tools and approaches
