Guidelines on Minimum Standards for College Technology, Adopted Spring 2000.
Academic Senate for California Community Colleges, Sacramento.
The document provides guidelines that cover a comprehensive collection of tools for instructional technology for California community colleges. The Academic Senate strongly supports the concept that state-of-the art equipment and instrumentation are indispensable across the curriculum, especially in vocational areas, for the development of hands-on student skills. Local academic senates should ensure that their technology policies promote the enhancement of instruction for all students and contribute towards reducing the "digital divide." The college should have policies that ensure a college technology plan where the primary driving force is curriculum and instruction and the integration of the college technology plan with the college educational master plan. Every computer should have software to access the library catalogue system. The college should maintain a Web site with adequate server space for the individual faculty pages, class-related pages, department/division pages, and local academic senate pages. Students should have access to computers for on-campus computer instruction, computers for on-campus technology mediated instruction, and computers for computer assignments from any class. There should be an adequate number of classroom/labs with individual student computer stations for hands-on instruction. The college should provide an immediate response system if instruction is delivered online and other types of technology support. (JA)
