1. Approval of the Agenda
The agenda was approved. The minutes of the last meeting are on the website.
2. Business Arising
Web Accessibility: Mike told the committee that Chuck, Stuart, and Gerrit Bos had met with Peter Physick-Sheard and drafted a report. This will be discussed at the next ISC Meeting (Dec. 11). Chuck and Julia Christensen-Hughes also met with Peter to discuss other accessibility issues.
3. Multimedia Task Group Report – Kent Percival
Kent briefly reviewed the report and the recommendations proposed by the Task Group. This prompted discussion on departmental versus an institutional model for digital media; central provisioning and the issue of quality; campus needs and capacity; and what impact does the IT governance model have on where we go with multimedia. Members agreed as next steps Mike and Kent would develop a more focused plan and bring this back to ISC.
4. E-Learning and Putting Pedagogy First – Alan Shepard
Alan is chairing the 21st Century Curriculum Committee. This committee was initiated to support the curriculum based initiatives arising from the Provost’s White Paper: The Lighting of a Fire: Re-imagining the Undergraduate Learning Experience. Alan provided an overview of the process, the various subcommittees that have been struck and his expectation that the community should see reports from the various groups in early 2007.
