Abstract (up to 200 words):
As educational technologies become more integrated into all dimensions of university life, decision-making processes require the involvement of a network of constituents. Though hierarchical administrative ranks have been accustomed to control over infrastructure issues, the far-reaching impact of new communication technologies in the realms of hardware, software, faculty training, student services, technical support, instructional advances, and distributed education needs a much greater diversity of perspectives and experience to provide appropriate oversight. The Teaching, Learning & Technology Roundtable on NC State?s campus was established in response to that need. It is now completing its fourth year as an active and vital part of the integration of educational technologies on campus. While the Roundtable does not function as a policy-making or implementation body, its recommendations carry weight because of its engagement with such thorny issues as course management systems and open source software. This proposal is for a panel that will present reflections from a diverse array of individuals from the NC State on the changes the formation of the Roundtable reflects, produces, and responds to on a Research I university campus. The topics covered will include some of the consequences of the interactions among groups that had rarely conversed directly before.
