Valencia Community College Educational Technology Plan, 2000-2004.
Valencia Community Coll., Orlando, FL.
The purpose of the Educational Technology Plan is to provide a collaborative framework to address the institutional assessment, prioritization, implementation, and resource allocation associated with technology issues at Valencia Community College (Florida). The plan has been integrated with the college's Comprehensive Strategic Plan goals and objectives so that it reflects and supports the overall strategic objectives and mission of the college. Common goals include: (1) increasing students' performance and success at the next level of education, in the marketplace, and in life through educational excellence in curriculum development, teaching, and learning; (2) increasing students' success through a continuous professional enhancement program that results in improved scholarship, effective us of technologies, and quality programs and services; (3) increasing students' postsecondary transition, retention, progress, and completion through a developmental advising process that ensures students establish measurable objectives; (4) increasing students' completion of their programs through significant improvement in the college's planning, management, and evaluation processes, its facilities, operations, and support services, and its information technologies; and (5) increasing students' performance and success by acquiring public and private funding to implement necessary programs. Valencia is moving from an administrative focused, mainframe-based technology environment to one that is both student and learning-focused and is based on client-server and Internet technologies. The Education Technology Plan supports this transition and recognizes the need for additional focus and support of academic technologies. (JA)
