Faculty Technology Exploration
Spring 2011, ITEC initiated a faculty exploration project focusing on tablet computing. ITEC invited Trinity faculty to submit a brief proposals interested in participating in a pilot study to investigate educational applications of iPad (tablet-based) technology. The committee received 12 proposals in exploring iPad technology for enhancing classroom or research experience, stating their pedagogical goals.
At the conclusion of the semester long evaluation the 12 participating faculty members submitted reports sharing their impressions on the value of tablets and summarized successes and failures in meeting their pedagogical goals.
On November 3, 2011, ITEC hosted a Common Hour presentation from participating faculty. Videos of the presentation are available below.
