The Academic Technology Advisory Committee (ATAC) was formed in Fall 2008 to have an advisory role to the office of Academic Technology and serve as a forum to discuss and assist in planning, support and communication of academic technology initiatives for teaching and learning. Representatives from various campus constituencies with broad expertise in the areas of teaching, learning, research and technology infrastructure comprise the ATAC committee.
The charge of the committee is as follows:
Research how departments currently use and plan to use the technologies in the computing facilities.
Evaluate how these technologies are working for the curricular needs of the programs.
Communicate university policies and procedures as they relate to Academic Technology facilities and services.
Advise administration and the university community on technology trends that may affect the curricular needs of their programs.
Share information discussed in the committee with university staff and faculty members.
