Meeting Logistics: Tue, 6 February 2007 in UMC 404
Thanks to Kimberly and Laura, there will be a screening of Declining by Degrees, the film that will serve as the basis for our next Junto, from 11-1p this coming Monday, February 5 in Telecom 215.
The documentary examines the challenges today's university faces, even suggesting that more interactive teaching (in this case, clickers) might help retain students and thus revenue streams.
Since I want to leave some time for us to talk about how things are going for us in our own positions, especially in light of the CULearn launch, I will keep questions short and sweet:
- If the university (thus, ITS) had more money, how do you think it would best be spent?
- Is technology antithetical to more personal contact between faculty and students—something the documentary suggests as an improvment?
