Technology for Learning and Teaching Group

The goal of the TLTG is to ensure that Boise State University becomes and remains a leading innovator in technology-enhanced pedagogy. Its foundational principle is that the formation, implementation, and assessment of our institution’s instructional technology vision is a shared responsibility that requires collaboration and cooperation among many units and individuals. As such, members help create, sustain, and refresh campus goals related to learning and teaching with technology. The TLTG engages in regular dialogue about ways to: 1) enhance digital fluency across the university community, 2) encourage the intentional use of tools that can ameliorate the educational mission, 3) examine issues that impact the adoption and support of reliable learning technologies (used either in physical or distance classrooms). The group examines various plans and projects to help frame projects within goals and mission statements and, in so doing, creates synergies in the community. The TLTG gives recommendations for formative and summative evaluations of projects so that internal and external personnel can benefit from lessons learned. Co-chairs of the group include the director of the Center for Teaching and Learning and the director of Learning Technology Solutions. Committee membership includes stakeholders from multiple campus entities, to include Albertsons Library, eCampus Center, Foundational Studies, etc.; a select number of faculty will also be part of the TLTG. The committee meets ten times during the calendar year. For more information, please contact either Susan Shadle, 426-3153, or Leif Nelson, 426-1851.

Workplace Climate Monitoring Committee

The Workplace Climate Survey Committee is the reincarnation of the Campus Climate Survey Committee last called by the Provost in 2012. The committee will be called every five (5) years to put out a new survey. Contact will initially be the Provost Office, who will assign a chair for the committee. Representation of the committee will be listed in the charter and all Senates will provide representation for the committee. This committee is charged with conducting a survey of the campus workplace climate for faculty and staff and providing feedback to higher administration regarding campus needs to improve campus climate. With this survey, we will examine how the campus community perceives the working environment at Boise State University in terms of campus relationships and issues of gender, class, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation, etc., and how these components affect civility and tolerance on campus.
