Committee on Undergraduate Excellence – 15 members (2013-14)

The work of the committee will span the 2012-13 academic year and the beginning of 2013-14, culminating in a report to the Dean no later than November 1, 2013. The report should focus on three sets of recommendations: (1) defining the purpose and goals for general education in the College of Arts & Sciences; (2) the framework of a curricular model and co-curricular experiences to achieve those goals, including any new initiatives, course clusters or suggested restructuring of existing requirements; and (3) insights on pedagogy and methods of instruction.

New Learning Technologies Committee – 12 members (2013-14)

The New Learning Technologies Committee serves to establish and promote technology resources available to faculty and students and to explore new ways of integrating technologies to support teaching and research. The Committee will generally meet monthly to discuss instructional technology initiatives, best practices for using teaching tools, and emerging teaching and learning trends in higher education. The longer term goal of this Committee will be to advise the Dean broadly on a strategy, consistent with the College's mission, to design and implement a state-of-the-art educational technology culture and structure for Arts & Sciences. Initially, the Committee will focus on developing a robust faculty grant program to encourage innovation in teaching with technology to improve learning in undergraduate classes. In meeting this aim, the Committee will: provide a forum in which faculty can share their experiences in the use of teaching and learning technologies; develop a framework for small- and large-scale faculty-led projects related to technology and teaching initiatives; establish a process for soliciting and selecting among faculty proposals; and provide recommendations to the Dean on the areas of the curriculum to which faculty projects should be targeted.
