Faculty IT survey generates support recommendations

Friday, May 4, 2012
Sean O'Malley  

A fall 2012 survey of faculty IT needs has resulted in multiple specific recommendations to Stephen Golding, Vice President for Finance and Administration, and Pam Benoit, Executive Vice President and Provost, regarding OIT support for teaching and research.

Based on that survey, the Faculty Technology Advisory Group (FTAG), a committee sanctioned by the Faculty Senate and tasked with providing recommendations regarding faculty IT needs to OIT and to the University administration, made the following recommendations:

  • Providing substantially increased network speeds and bandwidth for both the wired and wireless networks
  • Assuring network reliability, especially for the wireless network
  • Providing timely and focused technical support, especially for classroom technology
  • Providing training and support for users of Blackboard and other technologies, such as lecture capture and web conferencing
  • Providing sufficient storage for electronic files for instructional and research/creative purposes
  • Providing capability for electronic transfer of large files for instructional and research/creative purposes
  • Supporting faculty efforts to identify, evaluate and implement promising IT technologies and services

Full results of the survey, FTAG's report to the VP and EVPP, OIT's response to the report, and FTAG's reply are available below:

Questions about these documents can be directed to Phyllis Bernt, chair of FTAG.
