Abstract (up to 200 words):
How do you develop a campus portal for students and faculty that will meet their needs to enhance the teaching and learning process? Promote collaboration! Ask them what they want! This presentation will discuss effective ways that were used to engage students and faculty in the design of a campus portal for the purpose of providing services that enhance the educational experience. The Players: Central IT - Tasked with the daunting mission of implementing a campus-wide portal, this group is wringing their hands as they access limited internal resources. Students - Shimmering with uncontained energy, thousands of students beg, plead, and demand opportunities for real-life experience in their educational experience and demand to be heard. Faculty - Eager to meet the highest pedagogical standards of excellence by providing hands-on experiential opportunities, this group desperately examines the horizon (and scholastic journals)for solutions. The Players Meet: Central IT meets Faculty, discuss scenario. Central IT finds valuable resource, Faculty offers students opportunity, Students channel energy into real-life experience and have their voices heard. Everyone lives happily ever after!
