Challenges in Supporting Faculty Who Use Technologies in Composing Communities.
Werner, Mark
This paper discusses the role of a Distributed Technology Coordinator at the University of Colorado at Boulder in helping faculty (particularly composition faculty) utilize technology as part of their teaching. It begins by discussing how the Distributed Technology Coordinator establishes relationships with and acts as liaison between university faculty, Information Technologies Services staff, and deans and directors. It then discusses the process of working with these groups, which includes: (1) assessing the technology landscape on and off campus; (2) helping faculty evaluate and use technologies; (3) dealing with faculty learning preferences and perspectives; and (4) helping faculty through the retirement of obsolete technologies. It continues by presenting recommendations for supporting faculty in technology use. It concludes by listing factors contributing to the success of the program. (EF)
