Presenters: Lorrie Clemo, Sean Moriarty, Nicole Decker, Dave Kahn, and John Kane

Among the top priorities of the SUNY Oswego Provost's office is to equip the faculty to meet increasing student needs and expectations for technology integration within the classroom. Supporting this priority has been a focus of the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) and Campus Technology Services (CTS).

At the same time, several academic departments were preparing to make available or had already adopted more mobile and personalized devices in the classroom, both to students and to instructors.To support these goals, SUNY Oswego conducted a project that provided fifteen (15) instructors with iPads to support their work in the classroom and use as a teaching tool. To receive a device instructors were requested to submit a proposal, and over 50 proposals were received. To be part of the pilot, instructors agreed to meet on a monthly basis and share experiences and lessons learned. The synergy created by having the instructors' share their experiences led most instructors to go far beyond what they had originally envisioned their use of the technology would be. This presentation will:

  • describe the goals,scope and management of the iPad project
