At many institutions, the effort to improve
teaching and learning with technology is hampered not just
by lack of resources and attention but also be fragmentation
of effort and by conflict. TLT Group consulting, training,
and materials are designed to help the different units and
interest groups of the institution:
to recognize and
deal with important conflicts, while avoiding
to cope with issues that
would otherwise 'fall between the cracks,' and
to coordinate the work of
disparate units that have overlapping missions (e.g.,
faculty development program, support units of
information technology operations; user support in
libraries; faculty support units of distance learning
Strategies and resources for
Teaching, Learning and Technology
Roundtables: A TLTR brings together
people who wouldn't otherwise communicate or
collaborate, but whose work together could be crucial
for the institution to make better use of technology to
improve teaching and learning.
Learning, and Technology Centers

institutional units, each of which has responsibilities
for supporting teaching and/or learning with technology,
which work together (to some degree) as though they were
our web-based survey tool, to support shared
governance by soliciting advice and evidence from a wide
range of community members before setting policy.
This strategy can engage adjunct faculty, students,
and other groups often left out of the policy-making
here to learn about several ways in which Valencia
Community College does it.
matrix surveys, e.g., with a faculty development
unit, the library, Information Technology, distance
learning, and facilities all contributing questions to a
Flashlight Online 2.0 is the only system that can
support such matrix surveys.
This material deals with 'hot button
issues' in education, and how to deal with them honestly
while managing the risks involved.
Confusors - terms that can start
accidental, unnecessary arguments when different people use the same
word (e.g., 'learning," "classroom," "campus,"
"technology," ...) to mean different things.
