  • ComETS Participation with TLT-MAG
    Please take a moment to read this brief update and consider my request for your input…

    Update: 
    The Teaching, Learning, Technology Madison Advisory Group (TLT-MAG) began meeting this academic year as one of several campus groups charged with making recommendations to leadership about UW-Madison’s learning technology systems, tools and support. ComETS is fortunate to have an opportunity to participate. During the group's last few meetings, I’ve served as the ComETS representative. TLT-MAG is now set to meet at the end of next week to consider and adopt a set of principles that will guide the group in it's advisory role. 

    Request: 
    I’d very much like to hear from you if you have thoughts, comments, or questions on either the attached set of principles, or TLT-MAG in general. Please email me at jbklein2@wisc.edu. When the group convenes, I’d like to have a diverse array of perspectives from the ComETS community. Also, please stay tuned for further updates. I hope to use future opportunities to foster good dialogue within the ComETS community.
