In support of our UAS mission, the Regional Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR) brings together faculty, staff, and students in order to make recommendations in support of innovative strategies and practices for using technology to improve teaching and learning. The TLTR is a shared governance committee at UAS that reports both to Faculty Senate and to the Provost. The Faculty Senate President and the PRovost each appoint a co-chair. Recommendations from the regional TLTR are submitted to both entities. The TLTR is expected to make recommendations to the Senate and Provost about best practices in technology-enhanced learning, faculty and staff professional development needs, and facilities and support services available to improve teaching and learning with technology.
The regional TLTR brings together the voices of faculty, staff and students from the three UAS campuses. The forum advises the Provost and Faculty Senate and sustains the collaborative change needed to improve teaching and learning opportunities through the use of technology.
The Juneau Campus TLTR was initially formed in the fall of 1995. A significant national effort, under the auspices of the American Association for Higher Education and Accreditation (AAHEA), has been established to coordinate and provide mutual assistance in these activities and others among many institutions of higher learning. Since this time we formed a Regional TLTR including Ketchikan, Sitka and Juneau campuses. For more information, visit the Website for The TLT Group, an affiliate of AAHEA.
Staff and faculty members are appointed jointly by the Provost, Dr. Richard Caulfield, and by the Faculty Senate President each academic year. Nominations for membership will be accepted in spring semester for the following academic year. In making these appointments, the Provost and the Faculty Senate President will strive to make appointments that seek a balance of faculty/staff representation. Three student representatives, one from each campus, are selected by the chair of the local TLTR and a Student Government Representative.
