What is a TLTR?

The concept of assembling the most knowledgeable people around a table where all participants are equals may date back to Camelot, but in the 1990's, the same approach caught on at higher education institutions across the country. The idea to bring faculty, staff, and administrators together to address instructional technology issues was hatched as a model for institutions affiliated with the American Association of Higher Education, and was later championed by the non-profit Teaching, Learning, and Technology Group.

Today, more than 400 institutions of higher education (including TCC) convene at local Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtables to reduce the widening gap between what faculty and students expect from technology and what technology support professionals and limited budgets can help them achieve. Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtables deal with technology's toughest questions and provide thoughtful advice to institutional leaders.

At Tidewater Community College, each campus has its own Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR). The campus Roundtables are loosely-organized groups of concerned faculty, staff, and administrators who gather to investigate and promote awareness of new methods for integrating technology into the teaching and learning process, and to make recommendations to the college for the organization and funding of instructional technology. The campus TLTRs have a flexible membership; all full and part time faculty, staff, and administrators are welcome to participate.

The campus TLTRs elect two co-chairs to serve as representatives at the college-wide Teaching, Learning, and Technology Governance Committee (TLTC) meetings. The TLTC works with the campus TLTRs, the Office of Educational Technology, the Office of Information Systems, the Faculty Senate, the Curriculum and Instruction Committee, Student Services, the Learning Resource Centers, and the College's executive staff to exchange ideas and make recommendations. The college-wide committee has an established membership; only elected and appointed representatives may vote, but meetings are open to all who wish to attend.
