Ed McGee called the meeting to order.
Minutes from 04/08/14 on Communication Central approved
Our official goal for the first meeting (established at last year’s final meeting) is to discuss options for online voting outside of meetings. Ed McGee suggested that he could put together an online survey to use for voting. Present members agreed that online voting is acceptable provided notification of the vote was made enough in advance (at least one day). Present members agreed that majority rule is acceptable. John McCullough motioned for information regarding the voting policy to be sent to all E2IT members for an official vote. Kevin Riley seconded.
Discussion followed regarding use of subcommittees. Shannon McDermott recommended that for each constituency group, an E2IT committee member serve as a representative. The representative will attend constituency meetings (if possible), and provide an opportunity for attendees to raise any concerns/questions/needs, which that representative would then bring back to E2IT for discussion. Will Sandidge recommended that representatives notify the constituency presidents in advance of the constituency meetings, allowing time to add them to the agenda, and allow the constituents time to consider their needs. Constituency presidents/chairs are Peter Dorman for faculty, Ed McGee for Classified Staff, Jana Fedele for Part-Time Staff. Ed McGee asked for volunteers: John McCullough volunteered for Faculty Representative and was elected. Kevin Riley volunteered for Classified Staff Representative and was elected. Mike Danos volunteered for Part-Time Staff Representative and was elected.
E2IT’s mission was discussed, and Will Sandidge suggested amending mission #3 and #6. Present members agreed that mission #3 should be revised, and mission #6 removed (as any recommended educational changes to the website fall under revised mission #3).
· Original mission #3: produce policy regarding Distance Education, and all educational technology issues
· Revised mission #3: recommend policy regarding educational technology issues
John McCullough motioned to accept amended mission, Mike Danos seconded.
General discussion followed regarding mission #4. Ed McGee suggested that E2IT could generate a list of recommendations that he could use while completing the Instructional Technology and Distance Education budget for the following year. Additional discussion followed regarding limitations of E2IT since this committee does not receive funds. Will Sandidge suggested that E2IT can submit a request to receive funds for next year. In the meantime, if E2IT has technology to test out, possible funding sources include individual divisions, CVCC Educational Foundation, IT, and grants.
Meeting adjourned at 1:48 PM
