Creating a campus-wide strategy for the use of technology in teaching and learning

04-15-2013

In late February I called on the MSU community for help in considering how we might move ahead to create a campus-wide strategy for the use of technology in teaching and learning. Shortly thereafter, an Issues Team was formed to consider this question. That group has formulated a series of recommendations for my consideration, and I am now inviting members of the campus community to review these recommendations and contribute their suggestions.

Based on both my initial response to the recommendations and a number of exchanges with members of the Issues Team, I anticipate making an announcement soon regarding a few limited and short-term experiments with MOOCs at MSU. Additional actions in other areas have yet to be determined, so your thoughts are especially welcome at this very early stage.

As I intend to swiftly create a tentative plan for moving forward (at least on some aspects of a plan), I would appreciate your feedback, sent to provost@msu.edu, by the end of April.
