|STF committee calls for proposals; open meeting set for Oct. 13|
The Student Technology Fee Committee is calling for proposals for spring 2007 technology fee dollars. The committee will make recommendations for proposals based on the following:
* Descriptive Criteria: dean's ranking, innovation, student benefit, impact on the curriculum and/or on research, and how does this project address your unit's strategic plan?
* Demographic Criteria: number of students served, number of disciplines served.
* Unit Support: access to equipment, technical support, matching funds from the department/unit, and technology available for redeployment.
Please note that all proposals must be submitted using the spring 2007 (073) STF Request Form. Forms may be accessed at: www.und.edu/org/stf/forms.html or you may request one via e-mail from Carol Hjelmstad at firstname.lastname@example.org . Departments/units should submit the proposals to their deans or directors for review and prioritization. Units which answer directly to vice presidents should submit proposals to them for review and prioritization. Vice presidents, deans and directors may have earlier deadlines. The deadline to submit proposals to the Student Technology Committee at Stop 9041 is Friday, Nov. 3.
Proposal writers must consult with the various support offices on campus for costs associated with installation of equipment, accessibility issues, security concerns and adaptive technology. Unless departments are prepared to pay for these out of their own budgets, proposal writers should obtain estimates and include them as a part of the budget for the proposal. In addition, proposal writers must consult with Disability Support Services regarding adaptive technology needed for the proposal and with the Center for Instructional and Learning Technologies regarding the equipment requested for compatibility, installation issues, and ensuing issues.
The STF Committee will hold an open meeting to address questions for those writing proposals for spring 2007 funding. This open meeting is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Memorial Union, River Valley Room. Presentations will begin at 11 a.m. and again at noon; please feel free to drop by anytime during the two hours as your schedule allows.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the proposal process, please contact Carol at 777-3172. -- Student technology fee committee.
