There is no question that change is happening; it is all around us: new government regulations, technological changes, the continued rise of for-profit institutions, questions about tuition costs, mounting student debt, and the value of a degree are all included. The University of Portland must chart a path forward regarding academic technology, and a Task Force on Academic Digital Futures is working toward that end. Input from faculty is needed in order to develop recommendations for moving forward since all faculty have a stake in the future direction of the University, and more input means a better set of recommendations. Please join any or all of these listening sessions:
- Session III: Mon., Dec. 9, 7-8 a.m., Terrace Room
- Session IV: Tues., Dec. 10, 5-6 p.m., Terrace Room
- Session V: Wed., Dec. 11, 3-4 p.m., Terrace Room.
In addition to these listening sessions, a survey will be distributed so that all will have the opportunity to give an opinion and comment on aspects of digital learning. For more information contact the provost’s office at 7105 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
