Seminar: 2 + 2 = 5: Collaborating to Meet TLT Support Needs

Abstract (up to 200 words):
Even in budget-challenged times, service units involved in providing support for the integration of tlt can survive and even thrive by using strategies based on collaboration and creativity. For example, the AAHE TLT Group is promoting the use of Low Threshold Applications (LTAs), teaching/learning applications of information technology that are reliable, accessible, easy to learn, non-intimidating and inexpensive to introduce mainstream faculty to tlt. Other organizations are promoting collaborations of librarians, instructional technology and Help Center staffs to develop on-line student technology support at institutions without formal organizations to serve that need. This seminar provides an opportunity for participants to share examples of practices that may help us all to meet increasing demands for support that are a part of tlt in higher education. The goals of this session are:1) to develop a brief inventory of some of the low-cost and/or collaborative strategies that are being used on UNC campuses to meet support needs for tlt; 2) to "brainstorm" collaboratively to provide suggestions on ways to approach participant-introduced issues in the support of tlt, and 3) to determine how and where we may want to share what we have learned in this session to a broader audience.
