Educational Technologies Subcommittee

The primary role of the Educational Technologies Subcommittee is to provide oversight and direction for the effective, efficient, integrated, and innovative use of educational technologies at the institution. The committee will develop and maintain a strategic vision and plan for the advancement of educational technologies at WesternU from an institutional, rather than unit perspective. The committee will be client-driven, with IT playing an advisory and supportive role.

Typical responsibilities of the Educational Technologies Subcommittee will include assessing current and evaluating proposed educational technologies, providing strategic project portfolio prioritization and resource allocation recommendations, reviewing the institutional educational application portfolio to identify duplicative functionality and system consolidation opportunities, identifying gaps and deficiencies in classroom and instructional infrastructure, forming and overseeing ongoing and ad-hoc work-teams to address specific issues, and reviewing and developing relevant metrics, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), policies and procedures.

The Educational Technologies Subcommittee will be composed of representatives from each of the colleges and major instructional support areas of the institution, as well as representatives from various faculty committees as part of the shared governance process.
