Strategic Planning

The Technology Committee


Charge to the Committee

  • What are the options/trends for online learning/teaching with technology? What can we learn from other sectors: K-12, large research universities, graduate and professional schools? What can we learn from technology use outside of education?
  • How are faculty and students at Amherst College using technology now?
  • What might the role of technology be in teaching, advising, and portfolio development and student assessment?
  • How might we use technology to support known College goals, such as academic excellence in a “writing” and “research” college, and helping less well-prepared students or providing opportunities beyond the boundaries of the campus.
  • What might we learn from the science of learning relative to the use of technology?
