Access to Information Technology: A Statewide Vision for Colorado.
Mingle, James R.; And Others
Access to information technology is rapidly becoming the benchmark by which quality in higher education is judged. The use of information technology for both on-campus instruction and distance learning is nowhere near reaching its full potential in Colorado. This report provides a statewide vision for the incorporation of information technology into the fabric of the teaching, learning, research, and service agendas of Colorado institutions. Necessary components include: a statewide infrastructure connecting Colorado institutions and communities to world-wide computing networks; a campus network and student support services that facilitate learning whether on or off-campus; a curriculum that incorporates the best in instructional tools and software; a committed faculty who incorporate technology into their teaching, research, and service; and access to a computer for each student. The report provides specific recommendations on the following topics: (1) student access to computing and information resources; (2) faculty and curriculum development; (3) technology fees; (4) state financing of technology based instruction; (5) capital funding; (6) state incentive grants; (7) cost and productivity issues of information technologies; (8) K-12 connections with higher education; (9) workforce preparation and continuing professional education; (10) role and mission issues; (11) private college involvement; and (12) legislative perspectives. An appendix describes the project methodology. (SWC)
