COFFEE CHAT – Classroom Technology (Thursday, March 1, 2018, 3:30-4:30 pm)
Results on Michigan Tech’s annual IT satisfaction survey have climbed in recent years in almost all areas. One notable exception is instructors’ persistently “meh” ratings with regard to classroom technology. In this Coffee Chat, we would like to develop an understanding of the reasons for those ratings, and the expectations of instructors. Members of IT and a new task force being formed by the Provost charged to better connect instructors with teaching spaces that work for them will be in attendance. Come and share your thoughts about how classrooms should evolve! Coffee and light refreshments will be available to those who register by Monday, February 26th. Click here to register.
