  3. Role of Technology Council
    Paula provided a brief background/history of the Technology Council. The Council discussed what their role should be moving forward.
    1. Currently the Council is more information rather than strategic. Informational items could be done in other ways.
    2. Predict possible trends. What does campus technology look like 5 years from now?
    3. The Council could pilot some of the new ideas.
    4. Have "innovators" discuss ideas with the Council. Have sessions to learn and then meetings to make decisions.
    5. Consider having the CATL director on the committee
    6. Do research on issues and present information on the idea to Council. Use expertise to help create the larger vision.
    7. Need to address how we refine the Tech Plan.
    8. Part of our strategy should also link up to our students and curriculum.
    9. Digital Humanities might also be a topic for the Council to look into.
    10. Enterprise-wide issues should be focused on.
    Frequency of the committee meetings should be kept as is and adjusted as needed. Put a call out for big ideas between now and the next meeting.
  4. Adjourned: 11:55 am
