Teaching and Learning Support Strategic Leadership Team

The Teaching and Learning Support Strategic Leadership Team was formed on March 16, 2020, three days following the U.S. declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic, to respond to developing concerns about transitioning to emergency remote teaching.  This team was formalized following a year-long collaboration between IT and OTL with the goal of providing a centralized front for teaching, learning, and technology. Comprised of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, the Assistant Vice Chancellor, Campus Partnerships, the Assistant Vice Chancellor, Enterprise Application Services, and the Director of the Office of Teaching and Learning, this team meets regularly to consider structural solutions for campus-wide issues at the confluence of technology and teaching support. We are guided by the shared value that while we may be in different units of campus, all faculty will benefit from our careful collaboration.

The early work of this team focused on solving critical, imminent needs including providing adequate technology for faculty, creating programming and internal infrastructure to support faculty, and promoting broad adoption of distance learning technology. This team has collaborated on identifying and addressing gaps in training and communication, leveraging analytics to assess educational technology needs, creating processes for faculty support, and building capacity for more effective educational technology utilization. As the university shifts away from emergency remote teaching, this team is evolving to longer range planning, including considering relevant policy, to facilitate prolonged and sustainable distance education.
