He also noted that he wanted to work with Staff Development to offer trainings and also to develop a campus-wide survey. (At the end of the meeting, Kip, Scott, and Carol offered to be the representatives from Staff Development to that subcommittee.)
After his presentation, a lively discussion focused around various topics. Scott Hildreth advocated for also paying for someone to come from outside to complement these trainings. He noted that faculty especially need to see ideas and possibilities so that they can see the need for training.
Michael noted that CVC membership brings free training.
Kip added that @One has hosted regional meetings to work with the deployment of technology, that faculty can make web pages or develop Power Point presentations but that there is currently no reliable way to deploy that technology into our classrooms.
Michael noted that this is a chicken and egg problem.
Scott suggested that training be offered in concert with implementation in order to enable more people to use technology quickly and asked what incentives we could offer. He also suggested that we consider mentors for faculty, particularly division-based mentors.
Kip noted that the pilot model developed in Title III could be used to spec out possibilities and that we look at levels of utilization.
Minta added that getting into particular areas is important.
Carol said that we need to look at the labs that are out there and to offer hands-on reinforcement for students.
Scott noted that Saturday training would be appropriate; Irene added that mentors could be adjunct faculty.
Greg added that he was largely self-taught on GroupWise and pointed out the difficulties of classified staff getting to workshops.
