Teaching and Learning with Technology Collaborative – Annual conference
The TLTC’s annual conference will be held on March 30 through April 1 in Raleigh. This conference has historically well attended by UNCP faculty and staff. This year, as in years past, the Distance Education unit under Dr. Charles Tita is again sponsoring a limited number of attendees. Please contact Dr. Tita to express your interest.
Search underway for instructional designer
The search for an instructional designer for UNCP has been resurrected and is nearing the interview stage. The designer will send most of his/her time working with faculty on online instruction with a focus of the pedagogy and assessment of online teaching and learning.
UNCP hosts regional workshop for leadership in MERLOT use
UNCP hosted leaders in the use of the MERLOT learning object repository/referatory for training in how to advance the use of MERLOT in teaching and learning. Faculty/staff from UNCP and FSU attended the one day event lead by TLTC and ECU staff.
NC-REN connection speed increased
Our connection to the North Carolina Research and Education Network (NC-REN), our gateway to the internet, has been increased from 22.5 Mbps to 622 Mbps. This gives us ample room for growth in our educational uses of the internet.
Information technology personnel to move to career banding
All UNCP SPA personnel in IT job classifications will be moving to a new personnel classification system called career banding later this year. While the Public Safety office is just completing this transition, the IT personnel in DoIT and other units (almost half the IT personnel on campus are outside of DoIT) will be reclassified to the new system which stresses the employee’s knowledge and skills in relation to the job rather than the requirements of the job. Eventually, all SPA classifications at UNCP will move to career banding.
