Agenda Items:

   Reports/Announcements         

   Derek Yip-Hoi announced that Mason Luvera is the new AS Representative for the Academic Technology Committee.

Standing Business

      A: Student Print Quota

·      Gary Bornzin suggested that each committee member act as a representative for their units to get an idea of what kind of policy would be best for the university. He also suggested that forming a working group would be a good way to give some more thought to coming up with policy recommendations. Bornzin offered to be leader of the working group.

·      Elizabeth Stephan and Frank Roberts both agreed to help Gary and be in the working group.

      B: WHETC Sub-Committee representatives

·      Yip-Hoi announced that John Lawson was looking for two representatives, one for LMS and another for Ebooks. Stephan remarked that she knows someone who might be interested and will speak to her candidate about being an Ebook representative.

New Business

      A: ATC STF Representatives

·      Yip-Hoi asked if anyone would like to volunteer to be the new STF Representative. Max Knittel suggested that this person should be a voting faculty member so that the recommendations ATC makes will be passed on with full detail.

      C: Improving ATC effectiveness

·      Yip-Hoi suggests that in order to boost ATC’s effectiveness, members will bring a list of issues that need to be prioritized. Stephan mentioned the development of a mission/value statement.

·      Bruce Hamilton shared that he likes the idea of an open discussion to decide what’s constructive. Yip-Hoi encouraged members to email him a list of any issues that need to be discussed.

      D: Blackboard for ATC

·      Another way to improve effectiveness might be to create a blackboard (Bb) site in which ATC documents can be displayed.

·      Frank Roberts announced that a site has already been created and he will make it live for members.

      E: Changes to STF proposal review process

·      Geoffrey Matthews suggested that a lot can be done online and further discussion can continue during meetings.

·      Yip-Hoi tabled the issue to give members more time to think about it.

 

Constituent Concerns

·      Concerned was expressed about DC++ usage, a file sharing utility site.

·      There should be a safe and anonymous way for students to report security problems.

 

 

Meeting adjourned at 5:05 PM.
