The Role of Facilities and Faculty Peer-to-Peer Mentoring in Supporting Faculty's Use of Multimedia/Computer Technologies in Support of Classroom Instruction.
Haffner, Arthur W.; Kress, Michael E.
This paper outlines characteristics of the digital information infrastructure at the College of Staten Island--City University of New York. It describes the college's vision for supporting faculty use of technology; the successful use of faculty peer-to-peer mentoring for expanding the pedagogic use of word processing, e-mail, listservs, home pages, the Internet for curriculum enrichment and research, and electronic materials (text, audio, images) in presentation programs. The paper describes the new Faculty Center for Excellence in Pedagogy and Media Technologies, a facility that provides faculty with access to two media specialist personnel and computer hardware and software, and two teaching laboratories, one for group instruction consisting of a network of 21 personal computers and another that is a 35-station teleconferencing laboratory for bridging learning distances.
