How do you engage faculty and staff?
We are trying to engage our faculty and staff more in order to better discuss issues, ideas and events surrounding educational technology. We want to promote dialogue and events focused on technology in learning and teaching and encourage sharing and feedback from faculty and staff to help guide our future technology directions.
We call our group Community of Educational Technology Support (ComETS). It is based on a similarly named group at U. of Wisconsin (http://comets.wisc.edu/), from where we got the idea: http://www.comets.iastate.edu/.
I have been looking for evidence of how this is done across different educational institutions, but am coming up short.
I am hoping some of you can share some ideas of how you do it and maybe link to any websites you use to promote this communication.
